Philj200 Learning the Banjo From Pete Seeger (93* d) Worked For me! 30 Mar 00


I had (nad still do) a first edition of his book. It was only 32 pages or so. And a simple drawn banjo on a yellow background. Later expanded editions had red covers.

It was simple and basic.And so was I with my brand new Vega Ranger 5-string. I learned every strum, hammer, pick, chord, song in the book. One of the best.

Jump ahead twenty years!

I'm walking down Madison Avenue in New York (About 15 years ago) and there's Pete Seegar and I assume his wife crossing at around 46th Street.

I introduced myself and thanked him for all he taught me. In his book and elsewhere. He would have stayed and chatted but the woman reminded him of something. So we shook hands and he adam-apple'd to the westside as I went downtown.
