Man, I vividly remember the day I impulsively said I’m going to play the banjo and bought a cheap fender starter pack off of Amazon.
Life has never been the same.
I open the internet to my homepage: banjobenclark.com, my wife rolls her eyes more, the kids run around the house playing the air banjo and saying “dinga-dinga-ding”, the neighbors have abandoned their once peaceful outdoor lounging areas, and I am hopelessly addicted to anything that has the word “banjo” in it’s title, url, table of contents, or index pages.
Congrats on the new hobby. I picked up the banjo having never played anything before. Right here with Ben is where I started almost 3 years ago, and I’ve been pickin’ and grinnin’ ever since. I’m confident your experience will fall right in line with the countless others who love his teachings, and instruments with strings attached to them.
Also, welcome to this community. It’s not the biggest banjo forum on world wide “intranets”, but I have found it to be the most helpful in terms of specific responses from others who legitimately love music and care about your learning and progress.
Like that great philosopher, Briscoe Darling, once said, “You got time to breathe, you got time for music.”
