Well, looks like I’m out of the frying pan and into a band again.
I have been picking the 5 string for about 2 1/2 years here at home now and have no one to pick it with so called on an add and happen to have played in other situations with 2 of the present band members (Bass & Mando players).
Not the greatest group of musicians around but will be playing about 75 gigs this year plus practice/rehearse together once weekly.
I’m looking forward to see how much picking with others helps my playing and motivation. …and I WILL be VERY motivated, as I don’t really consider my banjo picking anywhere worth being on a stage yet
