    Dian:

    I stopped by an auction house today and they are selling three banjos in tomorrow's auction.  Maybe I can learn to pick and join your gang!

        Had no idea Debbie had this in her!  I thought she was a fancy high-brow singer type!

        Hi Tim

         

        Debbie is NOT 'just' a high brow singer! Turns out she plays the guitar, but it's not as easy for her to do since her original surgery impacted her arm/shoulder. playing the banjo is really different (especially MY LITTLE banjo, which debbie is playing in this picture) since you don't have to raise your left arm so high to play the banjo. Debbie seemed to take to the banjo just great when I showed her a couple of chords, and I encouraged her to seek one out in VA.

        She has a pretty knowlegable friend there who is helping her search for one.

        YOU TOO can learn the banjo Tim, and if you have the slightest inclination, I would encourage you to do so. It's not nearly as difficult to play as the guitar. well..the oldtime banjo (frailing or clawhammer style) . That 3 finger bluegrass style takes many many tortuous years to master.
