Been playing fiddle since fifth grade (not very good at it), but in middle school decided I'd learn electric guitar, then bass, then acoustic guitar, then mandolin, then dulcimer, and then I finally picked my dad's old Crestline banjo and got as far as cripple creek. For anyone who has tried to learn too many instruments at once, it is nearly impossible too achieve any true competency if you are trying to learn to many things. So after floating back and forth on instruments for a while, I decided to leave the realm of electric music to play the sounds of the hills, mainly on my dad's Crestline, which I took the back off and added a rag inside. Occasionally playing fiddle and dulcimer when I become too frustrated with the banjo.
