At what age did you begin to play the banjo? With a lot of practice, patience I hope to learn to play a song people will recognize- with a miracle I hope to be able to play with someone as good as you and be proud of what I have accomplished-I have Parkinson's but this is a dream I hope will help me fight it with.

i started at 10 years of age, which means i have been practicing for 42 years. oh don't worry about anything, just play the banjo and enjoy it. you just want to make the music in your heart, not the music in someone else's heart, so you'll be fine. that's the beauty of music. it isn't a competition. it's the one place we can escape from all that rot.
