Little Neophyte Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument (34) Thought I Bought The Perfect Instrument 05 Jul 01


I did the research to find the perfect banjo. I asked several banjo nerd experts what I should be looking for and was given excellent advice. I went on a road trip with Guy Wolff to check out all the different types of banjos available. I narrowed my choice down to a tubaphone and was given a demonstration by Arnie Naiman of different tubaphones from different banjo makers so I could make my final decision. I settle on a Reiter Tubaphone. Its a 'good banjo'.
But guess what? Its under my bed collecting dust. Me and my good banjo never bonded.
I figure I went about this quest all wrong. I thought I did all the right things but it was not 'love at first frail'. I was so impatient to get my good banjo right away.
Kind of like a romantic relationship. Best not to try too hard to find one.

Can anyone else relate?
What do I do? Just leave my good banjo under the bed for now? (I have another banjo I can play for now)
