Howdy hey ya’ll. I’m on the road at the moment visiting friends and family. I promise to post something relevant soon. In the meantime enjoy the Hillbenders’s version of Pinball Wizard.
Music Monday: Banjo Pickin’ Girl, Leela and Ellie Grace
Even musician’s get heckled. I just discovered these two and it seems they dropped off the planet about a year ago. All of their pages are dead, meaning no updates for a year. No clue what happened to them, but they seem fun. I always love women who can play banjo.
Proof that Banjo Is Cool: Neil Young
“There is music you never hear unless you play it yourself.”
― Marty Rubin
If I could sum up the feel that I go for when playing banjo, this picture would be it. It’s Neil Young, circa 1970’s playing sitting quietly under a tree.
People usually make fun of banjo. My thoughts are if Neil Young plays, it must be cool.
Having a broken leg has it’s advantages. I was so busy last year that practicing my banjo was usually an after thought. My teacher can probably attest to that. I’m pretty sure I annoyed the snot out of him many times by showing up without the songs memorized.
I’m presently on week 30 of my “12 week vacation” and I’ve found a lot of time to practice.
Today, I spend a whole lot of my day sitting and picking and learning and I love it.
I especially love the fact that I can pick up my banjo and create something that didn’t exist five minutes ago.
That is too cool.
