Valentine's Day Banjo!

Saturday, February 14, 2009

Hey! Um... well, I haven't done a blog on fiddlehangout before, but there has to be a first time for all good things eh?!

But yeah, I just wanted to post a quick note to tell you all about the totally awesome dad I have! For Christmas the year I turned eight he got me a fiddle! That just helped to flame the fire I guess, because now I am TOTALLY in love with all types of music, and there are few things that I enjoy more then sitting around jamming on my fiddle! Well, not only is he a great dad, but he is also an great banjo and guitar player! I totally love him! Anyway... today (and happy valentine's day by the way), he gave me one of the best valentine's day presents I have yet recieved! A BANJO!! Yippee! It is kind of old and needs a little work, but with the help of my dad (who is also a luthier) and a lot of love, this banjo with be perfect for learning on!

For any parents who are wondering... it is one of the coolest things to sit around and play music with your family! Sometimes it is much easier to communicate through music, then it is thrugh words! If your kids show an interest in music DEFINENTALLY encourage it! It will be a life long gift to them!
