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.

Very nice. And you say you don't have to look at the tab. I wish my memory worked that well. Keep on, you are well on your way.

Great job!  Don't worry about speed yet, it'll come on its own.  (I didn't believe it either, but it did!)  Shoot for even timing and clear notes and the rest will happen.  You're well on your way, and your banjo sounds lovely!

What mistakes? All I hear are some very nice notes being played in musical fashion creating a feeling of peace. Looking forward to more of your tunes for sure.

Stop messing about missus....thats all there, the way to look at it is record yourself 12 months down the line and see the difference, I teach bluegrass banjo and I would be really impressed with that after 12 weeks...keep em coming girl...fatbanjo

Brilliant! I can play it a bit faster but my version is mostly...well, wrong. You`ve got the notes down perfectly and the speed will come with practice. I only wish there had been more banjo players about back when the "banjo virus" infected me. I might not have ended up playing all backwards. It`s been fun anyway. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Pete Huey

Oh my goodness, this was done a LONG time ago, I have definitely got a bit better since!
