Michael, Row the Boat Ashore

We’ve all stopped talking about Pete Seeger, now that the loss isn’t quite so keenly felt. But you’re not forgotten, Pete. You’ll never be forgotten.

Tags are annoying little things. The trouble is, I always forget to add them when I write a post. As a result, I have a couple of hundred posts that I need to trawl through and retrospectively add tags to. It’s not an interesting thing to do 🙂

You’ll also, no doubt, have noticed many banjo posts lately. That’s because the lovely little instrument has been consuming my free time of late. All of it. I do seem to be making some good progress with it, though. See, I’ve been playing guitar for about 25 years or so, but I kinda hit a plateau halfway through the first year and as a  result never quite got past playing a few chords. In the five or so months I’ve been playing banjo I’ve gone way past the level of guitar playing I’m at.

Which is nice. Because it’s a lovely cheerful instrument. All I need to do now is make more time to play it 🙂
