Just Not Enough Time

It’s been a crazy couple of weeks and next week will be even worse. I’ve been averaging four hours of sleep a night for the last two weeks and it is starting to take it’s toll on me. I am taking a break at work right now and if I wasn’t typing, I would be…



Irish Pub Song Of The Day – Frailing Banjo Lesson: Whatever You Say, Say Nothing

I did this song two years ago and got asked to do it again so you could see what both hands are doing. I love the song so I have no problem doing it again. I usually perform this song in D out of G tuning, but I didn’t want to throw anyone off this…

People are crazy and I’m almost ready to issue an apology

I got up at 7 am this morning and went off to work thinking it would be a good day. I got a message that an old clip of me playing banjo on A&E back in ’96 was seen again. I had forgotten all about it. I was playing with the Shamrock Shore at John…
