Keep expectations low - I'm still a baby at the banjo. The lighting is bad (partly by choice) and I keep playing through* a couple stumbles - I get the slide a *little* better the second time.
*A few months back someone recommended The Practice of Practice by Jonathan Harnum and I loved it. So I have tried to attend to the difference between practicing and playing, and I try not to practice-in my errors when I'm practicing, but I try to play through them when I'm playing.
beautiful tune nicely played! bravo
One finger picker to another ... nice job :-)
@Heady - well done, mate! I notice the way you kept to the rhythm, even when you stumbled slightly (and the stumbles were minor, I assure you), which tells me that you've put a lot of work into keeping to the beat. I look forward to hearing more from you as you shift up from baby steps to toddler steps, and on up from there.
Can I ask what tuning you were using, please?
With best regards,
Keep at it, well on your way to running...
Thank you :)
Jack, open G. I haven't ventured very far with tunings.
I recently obtained a paperback copy of the Dick Sheridan 2-finger primer and tried some of the... I can't remember the names but tunes & songs in several tunings with Cs, but I hang around mostly in open G.
