Good article...

https://www.wbur.org/artery/2019/04/17/banjo-project-digital-museumI had heard of The Banjo Project, but it's been a couple years since I last checked in on it. Sounds very interesting. Hopefully, it gets more people interested in the music and history.See More

"Yep, already have it. That's where I've stumbled with the thumb lead. I have the down load from Tim Twiss, so I plan to put the notation into tab and use the tab book to check against."

"Hi Rob -  sorry, I think there's a miss-communication...  I think the yellow Converse is a great place to start learning notation, most of the tunes there are not too complicated. I suggested some of the Buckley tunes in the 1868 book…"

Converse Thumb Lead

Since The Convergence, I have jumped into the yellow Converse. I'm struggling with the thumb lead. I've stopped trying to cheat the walk around. I've really been working the exercises and using the thumb more when noodling too. Essentially, I'm breaking the Briggs habit. Any other ideas?Also, I need to start the Buckley 48 (Paul suggested that as a good place to start) and teach myself how to read the music. But, that's a different animal.See More
