Hi. Pretty new here and wanted to share a fun (scary) experience lately playing.
I have been playing banjo about three years and jamming with a group about two years.
Came up with a test for myself, so I got my instructor (guitar, banjo, fiddle), her husband (guitar) and father in law (bass) to enter the Pickin in the Pines band competition.
First time playing banjo in public, and worse in front of a panel of judges.
Fun. Exciting. Scary. All the above.
We didn’t win but we gave it an awesome try. Can’t wait to do it again next year.
