I'm trying to learn the banjo, and decided to record a little with my computer mic. Okay, so I have a loooong way to go. But I figure I'll be pretty good by the time I'm 80. Why not?
By the way, the banjo has it's roots in Africa. The slaves used to fashion banjos out of gourds and the instrument caught on, eventually evolving into it's modern form.
For the record, I think banjo is harder than the other instruments I learned. The timing is really hard to get down, and so far I don't quite have it. But, Rome wasn't built....oh never mind.
