Hey up Donnie, Our practising seems to be on very parallel lines with the same material (Janet Davis's book? may I ask?) complete with record button blues with you being ahead by miles, keep it up mate, well done!

Yea Grumps, Janet Davis is the book I am working from currently. I thank you for your kind comments. They come to me at a time when I sure can use them. I thought I felt pretty good about what I was learning, until I hit the play back button. Boy will that humble ya some.

Bryan, thanks for taking time to offer some support. Great partners are hard to come by and I thank all of ya for that.

No way you should feel humbled. Most beginners cannot play it this well after many many weeks if not months.
And we'll listen past those nerves. We know all too well....;-)

Donnie, well played mate, as the Kidd says, you got your melody to stand out, thats the most important thing, the rolls are good and clean and you are well on your way, keep it up man!!!!!

Yeah Garry, that is the Hatfield. It is a fine banjo and if I can learn to play it better it will really be a great improvement for both me and the banjo. Do you use Skype? I am trying to get familiar with this program so I can visit and share stuff with others. Thanks for the comments Garry and we will talk again soon.

I know what you mean. I thought I was getting pretty good after not really playing for 12 years. I picked up the banjo again and I've been practicing now for about 2 weeks. I thought man I'm getting good. So, I turned on the recorder and uuuhhh My timing is really bad!!! So don't worry be happy!
