Playing “By Ear”

“The ear, once stretched by a new sound, never returns to its original limitations.”

This blog marks a new direction for me; I have decided that rather than blather on with my “opinions” (and piss people off—I tend to be just a bit passionate about the banjo!), I would concentrate on actual “facts”—my learned/experienced observations in the form of mini banjo/music lessons. This is of course in the hopes that you may decide to study with me at some point (in person or via Skype). My last blog, A Tale of Two Musicians, got some good responses, so I thought I would follow along in that vein.
