Been kinda stuck in the progress department lately, so I decided to just work on stuff I currently know until I can get through them all cleanly. Patience, grasshopper, patience...

I've had the banjo a week now, and figure I should get some sort of baseline established. Still having trouble fretting the C chord from open strings, and my fingertips continue to feel like they're the size of golf balls. But at least there are signs of progress...

Four days on, most of the chord change hitches have disappeared. It still isn't great, but progress is being made.

A lot of warts in this one, but wanted to get a baseline recording. The second part is giving me fits, but I'll get it eventually. This recording was also using the Saga kit banjo.

Plenty of warts in this one, too, but had to put up a recording with the new RK!

Having problems transitioning up the neck, but it's finally starting to get there. This is also with the RK.

This is the first recording I've made with the Saga kit banjo. It will never be mistaken for a Gibson, but it does sound like a banjo!

It's been a while since I recorded anything, but I'm still plugging away...

A wonderful tune written by Steve Martin. Still many mistakes, but making progress. This was using my Saga kit banjo, and the backing track was created with RealBand, using RealTrack instruments (wonderful software, IMO). The tab is from the May 2007 issue (#403) of the Banjo Newsletter (www.banjonews.com).

It's still far from being there, but at least now I have more than one tune in my repertoire :-). I'm finding the 'pinch' version to be slightly easier. Missing is the forward-reverse roll version -- I can't even make that recognizable as a tune yet...

Boy, for some reason, this one is a toughie for me. Quite a ways to go yet, but at least it's getting recognizable.

This is my first attempt at playing to, and mixing with, a backing track (many thanks to erstokke!). It's been a little over two months since I first held a banjo in my hands -- a long ways to go, but boy, it sure has been a hoot so far!

Slow pickin', but it's at least gotten to the point where those familiar with the tune might just recognize it...
