I’ve been playing the banjo for exactly 20 years now. I live in a small town in Missouri and enjoy a good jam every chance I get.
The banjo has been a huge part of my life since I was a child. It is quite fascinating and always provides a new challenge.
The most memorable times for me as a banjo player were when I attended South Plains College in Levelland Texas and studied under the direction of Alan Munde and Joe Carr. These are two of the most talented individuals I’ve ever met when it comes to bluegrass and music in general.
The most moving time for me as a banjo player was when I played at my grandfather’s funeral. He was my number one inspiration for learning to play this great instrument.
I’ve played in several bands here and there but mainly enjoy a good jam. The website (banjoexpert.com) is my main banjo focus. I want to help others progress at a quicker pace than I experienced. I pretty much pour all my banjo efforts into the website.
It’s great fun!
