Thanksgiving morning has arrived here in our house and I wanted to stop and thank you for visiting our site. I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to get to know you along your journey to becoming a better banjo picker. It’s my hope that you’ll find some very useful lessons and will be inspired to new heights with your banjo.
Here’s some Thanksgiving banjo tips.
1. Invest in a good hard shell case for your banjo when traveling.
2. Work up one or two songs at a time through to completion.
3. Keep a stock of banjo strings to change out as needed to eliminate procrastination.
4. Watch the pros to get new ideas. J.D. Crowe, Ron Stewart, Sammy Shelor, etc…
5. Try taking apart your banjo (if you’ve never done it). You’ll learn something.
6. Play your tunes for your family. They’re the most critical audience.
7. Practice in front of a mic at your house. It sounds good and you’ll learn mic positioning.
8. Buy some ProPik picks and try them out (the angled blades).
9. Keep your eye out for the vintage National picks.
10. Find a good banjo teacher whether it’s here, or somewhere else. You’ll learn much quicker.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving day! Go eat some turkey.
