Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

I'm going to keep a sort of running dialog going on here. I just want to provide some feedback as I try various helps which have been so generously provided to me here. I'm sort of the newbie spokesperson I guess.

I'm currently working on learning the 5 moves. so far I have been able to learn and practice the half strike , the strike , the strike and a half and the double strike. I'm helped quite a bit by the Harpers Ferry videos. The strike and a half with slurred notes is another story. I'm unable to catch all the detail from the video because it goes by so quickly...I'll try and watch faster. (smile)

Now I'm working on the strikes I can do accurately ,and paying particular attention to my timing.

Thats all for now

Oh man, thanks for the feedback. Good luck, and keep us posted. Hit a snag, use the site. You'll be out of a jam in a jiffy. Pretty soon, with lots of repitition, striking the banjo will feel as good as wearing an old pair of slippers.
