I took a banjo lesson on Saturday from a boy in Baltimore. He was only 20, but played better than I do, so that was all that mattered. His father is a hammered dulcimer and fiddle teacher, so I hope to find out more about folk music in Baltimore through them. We did Blackberry Blossom, and I had a good time. Unfortunately for me, Brad had some more suggestions of things I could do to improve my technique. One of them was play higher up the neck, which would result in a softer sound. I'm sure my family would be happy with that one!
