Banjo Progress Month 1

Turn your volume on low for this one!

This sound clip is not for the meek. It's not for sensitive ears either. It's my first month's progress on the banjo! I've been faithfully, repetitively and painstakingly playing the same two songs over and over. I'm doing very well with my chords- and not too bad with my strumming and picking either, but my right definitely needs to develop some more coordination.

If you are brave enough to listen to the clip- please pray that I'm much better next month. That's what I'm hoping for too!

If you're not brave enough to listen to the songs- turn your volume off, and enjoy the beautiful floral photographs that I took last summer.

You sound pretty damn good to me.

I'm a little intimidated now...I don't think I'll ever be that good on the mandolin.

Yay I will tune in again next month to hear your progress.
Although I am totally tone deaf so everything sounds good to me.
