We have posted many times about the free ezine published by Angie Sumpter for new banjo pickers getting started later in life. The online publication, called Silver Strings, has been offered at no cost via Angie’s web site since late last summer, with easy access to all issues from the site. Starting with the May issue, a subscription is required, but there is no charge and you can cancel at any time.
Instructions for subscribing by email are found on the Silver Strings site, and once you subscribe, you will have access to all past and future editions of the magazine. Articles in the May issue include tips on learning banjo breaks up the neck (with tab) and a profile of 13 year old banjo picker Ryan Holladay.
Angie also started a Learning To Play The Banjo Blog last month, which like Silver Strings, consists of a mix of learning tips and motivational commentary.
