Well, I made it here to NashCamp!
I’m sitting in the Dining hall, listening to the cacophony of twangs – barely a guitar or mandolin in sight. Needless to say, it’s rather loud. I see one reason why only banjo pickers are here; no one else could stand it all besides us.
So far, it’s been a great mix of socializing, picking and getting some quite invaluable advice from the likes of Tom Adams, Sonny Osborne, Ned Luberecki, Bill Emerson and Alan Munde. We just got out of a great hour listening to how Ned Luberecki thinks about fretboard logic, and before that, how Bill Emerson approaches playing, banjo tone, strings and bridges. Great stuff!
We’ll have dinner in about half an hour, then after that, we’ll sit around listen while Sonny, Bill and Company talk about the ‘old times’. Right now, I’m going to go grab my banjo, sit on the very spacious front porch and PICK!
