My fingers ache. My foot aches from tapping. Is this you, Banjoman? :-)

Oh, I think I'd have said something if that were me. Hope you played it 6 times.

That's impressive but I like my banjo at slower speeds. It must be a guy thing, that need for speed?

BANJO52 said...

Paula, probably a guy thing, yup. I just listened/watched it again, and you're right, it's all about speed, not the music. But it's remarkable, and it's one cup of coffee I don't have to drink.

Something tells me you're a better player than you let on...

BANJO52 said...

AH, thanks and I wish, but no. If I can find the key and the chords are pretty basic, I can clunk my way along with some CDs--adding banjo where it might seem a little bit appropriate. It's a great pleasure, gets me out of my head, and gives my eyes a rest, but I approach banjo and guitar like a plumber with a wrench.
