Well spring is here and a time for new growth and new beginnings, at least I hope so for my banjo playing's sake. Seem to have hit a stale mate, just going over and over the same stuff and haven't learned anything new??? Always intend to but seem's something always comes up and the banjo is put off until later. So starting today i pledge to spend at least 1 hour a day studying and practicing and not just moving on when I have something down half assed LOL.I spend a lot of time at my camper in the summer and always have my banjo with me, lots of printed material, no computer service at the campground, I have been very disappointed in myself lately and want a new banjo, but must justify it to myself before I spend the money :). Happy Pickin everyone.

I grew up around bluegrass music, my mother could play and did play everything, fiddle, banjo, accordian, harmonica, guitar ect ect.She never learned to read music until she was in her 60"s, but could listen to a tune three or four times and then play it. She learned to play classical guitar around 65 and was also very good at that, I don't think her ablities were passed on to me though LOL. Love the Banjo wish I had started years ago, but I will master it eventually I keep telling myself 3 to 5 years to get good, 6months ago I didn't know how to wear the picks! I can play 7 or 8 songs fairly well and love it, don't know if anyone else does but I do it for my own enjoyment, some day if others enjoy it that will just be a bonus.
