Banjo blogging

Things I learned at banjo lesson numbah two:
  • I need to relax my left hand; I'm holding it like a claw.
  • I don't have enough motion in my right hand.
  • I should play slowly in order to keep the flow going. Otherwise, I'm likely to rush through, then pause, then find the chord, then rush... Rush-pause-chord-rush-pause-chord is bad.
  • Three new chords: G7, A7 and Em. That's six!
  • I've been tuning my banjo by ear and it's in excellent tune! I must have a good ear. (Thanks, Dad!)
