I keep meaning to post more often than once a year,and perhaps this will be the year I do that!
Been teaching clawhammer & beginning bluegrass banjo on Zoom. Yes, mandolin lessons are available but the lack of inquiries for that make me wonder if mandolin is fading in popularity. I hope not.
Looking forward to getting the vaccine now that it's available in my age range. I haven't minded waiting as it's not that often now I'm actually underaged for something! I've been playing it very safe and it's paid off so far,for which I'm grateful. I haven't enjoyed not being able to dine out or go to Lowes,but grateful not to have gotten that virus or its variants.
I did invest in some lighting and a green screen to make better quality videos,and I have a Patreon account now. Subscribed to Bluegrass Unlimited mag and am looking into the IBMA.

Started playing guitar at age 11 strong points are classical & fingerpicking. Was interested in mandolin for the portability and versatility of playing styles. Other hobbies include gardening,sewing,making music accessories for mandolin and fiddle.
