A customer asked me why the Goodtime banjo was made of blonde wood and why the inlays were so simple. He was comparing the Goodtime to an imported banjo that had dark wood, thick shiny finish and some larger, more prominent inlays.
“Will I ever get better?” is the perennial cry of the pre-beginner (folks say there is no such thing as a pre-beginner but I have been one for 10 years…) or beginner player. We always feel just a tad bit “lacking” in improvement despite all of our best efforts. The truth is that we have more than likely made more progress than we know.
