Learning, Part Three: Self-Expectations

I have decided to take a longer tack on the subject of learning. There are so many aspects to consider; I think some extra time spent on “learning theory” will set you up for a higher level of understanding when I actually get to some banjo-specific information. Much of that has to do with our self-expectations; what do we expect of ourselves? What do we think we are capable/incapable of?

The Club

There’s an exclusive club that—while I will probably never belong to it—joining it has become my obsession the last few years. That club is the small group of guys/gals who have at one time made a living playing the banjo, thereby rightfully claiming experience.
