Still enjoying the music

Sunday, March 16, 2014

I haven't been on BHO for good few weeks now.

I've been out playing quite a lot of late and you know, for every hour out playing means a lot of hours practicing. Well, I need to do!

There's, as always, a lot of good and interesting blog entries.

I got my first banjo in the 1970's. It came to nothing! I splashed out on a proper bluegrass banjo in 2001. I started to learn the malodic style. It came to nothing! I flirted with the clawhammer style for about 2 months. Bored rigid! Then by accident I realised there was another style of banjo playing (Scruggs style) and I was hooked. So for the last 5 years I've been learnig Scruggs style banjo. I've been in a bluegrass band for the last 2 years and thoroughly enjoying this beautiful music. I'm also able to (the last 18 months) disect a banjo break on a record, but not a tune as yet. So I'm purty pleased with my progress this last five years.
