I'm Lee Jones, this blog is about me :D . It's my diary. I talk about my hatred for injustice and unfairness. I talk about my experiences in this nasty music business. I talk about egos. I talk about pathetic little men who seem to be everywhere. I talk about my basketball days, and even my little league baseball days. I don't talk about family, being that I have no family to speak of. It's just me, and I'm more than ok with that.

Life With The Banjo, Part II
About a year and a half ago, I'd been spending 3 or 4 hours a day, 3, 4 days a week, trying to get my banjo playing back - after not playing for about 20 years. This went on for months. It was painful and wonderful at the same time. I got to the point where I was kinda ok, and I did the video below. Then, my playing systematically disintegrated. Up until a couple of weeks ago, my playing was so bad that I couldn't even recognize what I was doing as playing. My right arm was so rigid that it was beyond belief, my fingers would not do anything resembling what I told them to. I don't know what happened a couple of weeks ago, but I could almost play, and now, I seem to be on the road to recovery - at least on my banjo playing :D .
I hope you'll take the time to watch the three minute video, it's a fun watch.
