Can you even recognise this one, played so slowly!! Nevertheless, here's my attempt at BBB, 12 weeks after starting to learn the banjo. I have given up trying to achieve a recording with no mistakes at all, so this one will have to do.

Latest recording attempt (!) at nine months in. I'll Fly Away at a reasonable tempo even if not up to the song's usual speed...;o)

Capo'd up to C so that I can use normal G, D and C shapes! First recorded attempts at singing and playing a banjo break in same song (this one plus Walls of Time). Also first attempts at working out the break for a song by ear rather than learning it from tab!

My latest tune from a tab my new teacher gave me to learn a couple of weeks ago. Coming up to one year picking quite soon!

I started learning this one a few weeks ago and hope that I have it to a decent level now to share a recording with you...although once again, the nerves start once the recording device is switched on!

Wildwood Flower by me as I am coming up to the six-months-pickin' mark. This is now one of my best ones but when faced with the recording device I seem to sound more hesitant and it takes ages to get a version with (almost) no mistakes in!!
