Banjo Lesson Today

Today my cleaning ladies came so I had to pick up, and I piled everything up on my bed, which I cleared off after they left. So I spent the morning busy, with the intent of practicing the latest piece on the banjo in the afternoon. And I've done it! All I need to do now is speed up. And I have an hour and a half in which to do it. Actually, I have the first half down and at speed, and I need to speed up the second half, which is more difficult for the right hand. Lots of drop thumbing. Good practice though.

The piece we are learning now is called "Jake Gilly." Last week and the week before it was "June Apple." I imagine we'll learn more of Jake Gilly today.
