TTSB’s Thirty-Day Challenge!

Tony Trischka’s School of Banjo–it’s Artistworks now, but I like referring to it by the old name–is doing a 30-day challenge starting January 15th. The idea is to record yourself stumbling through a tune, practice it every day for 30 days, then re-record. Tony views the two clips and comments on progress. Sounds right up my alley! I’ll do the tune ‘Sailor’s Hornpipe,’ another old fiddle tune and one that everybody knows (even if you don’t know you know it, you know it when you hear it). Here’s a tab of it I have that looks relatively easy, arrangement by Borker:

The first step for me is to convert this to FTab. I’ve done that, but it’ll take a little bit of time to put it into postable format, so watch this space for development!
