Bring your banjo and a song to sing. Develop skill in playing counterpoint and accompanying harmonies while you sing.
The banjo has become such a virtuoso instrument that we may have forgotten that the great Uncle Dave Macon combined great playing with joyous singing. Bob Lucas sings and makes his banjo sing. “Singing with the banjo is a primary feature to a happy life. If I am feeling low down and have reached a point where I have low regard for myself, I often recall the fulfillment gratified by closing my eyes and singing a favorite old folk song while playing the banjo. The possibilities for simple counterpoint and accompanying harmonies are right close under my hand. It is so great. Of course, you need a banjo and a song to sing. Come on.”
