The Banjo Experience Video Series

I am in the process of learning to play the banjo right now. It is something I have been interested in for many years I just never took the time to learn. From watching Hee-Haw as a kid all the way to hearing Steve Martin play the banjo on his albums, I have been mesmerized by the banjo. Hell I will even turn up my radio when the Buddy's Bar b q commercials come on. I have been asked A LOT if I plan on using it onstage. My intentions where never to use it onstage, I just wanted to learn it because I love the sound. But if I get to a point to where I can play it well enough and use it as kind of a accessory or a enhancement if you will to my act then yes I may occasionally bring it out on stage. With the banjo experience I wanted to bring everyone along for the ride of my learning to play the banjo. I want to show the joy of success along with the frustration of failier. I began some videos earlier but soon realized I needed to be able to play something atleast or the videos would become stale. So here we are, I have been filming some things for the 2nd installment of the Banjo Experience. Hopefully I will have it ready to post in about 3 weeks. I am working on "I saw the light" and that will probably be the main focus of video #2. So keep checking back to my website because I will have the new episodes uploaded here on my home page as soon as they are published.
