Thread Name: Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking
Subject: RE: Fingers, Hitting Frets, & Not Looking
Once again, I'm getting so much help, thank you.

Whistle Stop, I get what you are saying.
I am learning everything I can at once. Strengthening my chord postions, learning scales, and picking styles. At the same time I am slowly memorizing where everything is on my banjo so that ultimately my goal is to become so familiar with the fret board that I can just flow wherever my creativity takes me.
And I have my hands full of frets to work with being I have a long neck banjo. I think Rick suggested I buy it just to force me to slow down and absorb what I am learning.

Pete Peterson, I remember sending you those chords, and the positions on that tune do move up the neck. If you have an email address, I will send you my tune by Voizmail. I would like to start using Realproducer but I have not gotten around to it yet.

And Neil, your postings have always inspired me to keep on creating. That has to be the greatest advice of all.
