Hi, I’m not much of a poster here; lurk all the time though.
I’m 16 years old and have only been playing (trying to play) the banjo for a year; I’ve been to a few sessions but never had the confidence to actually take the banjo out of the boot.
Being at the All Britain at the weekend made me realise what a great feeling sessions give me; but as I’m so new to the music, I still don’t know many tunes, so I wouldn’t feel comfortable trying to play in a session yet.
Anyway, enough rambling - my questions are:
How long had you been playing when you played in your first session?
How long would you want a player to have been playing before they joined in your session?
