Any advice for a father of a 7 year old aspiring banjo player? As a family we went to see Larry Keel and natural bride and will made a very lasting impression with my son! Barnyard Electronics was amazing at Lamascos in Evansville Indiana this August!
show him that video. i have had some luck with youngsters with taking a regular banjo, and capoing at the fifth fret and teaching them to play in C. they get used to holding a regular banjo and the tone is good and it will stay in tune and it works for the short arms. as he grows, eventually take the capo off. there are some commercially made little banjos that may work. though i had one around here and i couldn't get it to stay in tune too good.
Are you God? If not, is there one?Danny Barnes responded on 10/19/2013 Next question
Iv seen videos of you playing guitar (with great style in my opinion) and Iv read album credits that have said you play mandolin on certain songs, I especially remember reading that on Bad Liver album credits online. I was just wondering, as someone who also plays more than one instrument, if you wouldnt mind sharing how you divide up your practice time among the different instruments that you playDanny Barnes responded on 10/19/2013
