Seth Hemond187Hey there G+ Banjo Players,Thought I'd share my circle of Banjo Players since it's been a while. It's still growing and still producing some pretty great conversations. It might be topping out a little at just shy of 350 folks. I guess we'll see.This circle is a mix of amateurs and professionals. Bluegrass, Old Time or any ol' kind of style you've decided you play.If you're included in error and don't play the banjo let me know and I'll clear that up.If you aren't included and do play the banjo, well let me know and I'll clear that up too!I've really met some great folks, got tips on playing, got tips on tech matters, shared favorite performers, been able to see folks' posting vids and audio of themselves playing traditionals and originals... all in all a great group of people from all walks of life who play the banjo. Many multi-instrumentalists as well.Anyway, here's where my Banjo Player circle is at. Save your own banjo circle and as you meet more folks, share it back. Feel free to let other banjo folks you know that they can get in touch with me and I'll be sure to add them in as well.Thanks,Duke#PublicCircles2011-12-11 17:52:44347302
Seth Hemond187Hi G+ Banjo Players!It's been a little while since I've shared this circle so here's the latest generation of my Banjo Player Circle.This list is a mix of amateurs and professionals. Bluegrass, Old Time or any ol' kind of style you've decided you play. This circle is still growing and still growing a lot faster than I thought it would. Who knew so many early G+ adopters would play such an awesome instrument?Please let me know if you're included in error and don't play the banjo and I'll clear that up. If you aren't included and do play the banjo, well let me know and I'll clear that up too!I've really met some great folks, got tips on playing, got tips on tech matters, shared favorite performers, been able to see folks' posting vids of themselves playing traditionals and originals... all in all a great group of people from all walks of life who play the banjo. Many multi-instrumentalists as well. The Banjo Circle even reunited two long lost cousins who hadn't run into each other since the 70s (I think). It's like there's nothing the banjo circle can't do!Anyway, here's where my Banjo Player Circle is at. Save your own banjo circle and as you meet more folks, share it back.Thanks,DukeSeth Hemond shared a circle with you.2011-10-30 19:53:502601011

Calling all banjo pickers!

I thought it'd be nice to see if we can create a bit of a pickers community here on G+. If I got something wrong and you don't play the banjo, sorry, let me know I messed that up.

If you know some other banjo players here on G+ send them my way or drop their name in a comment below.

Nice to meet you all. :)

Learning the banjo and other related things:

I'm not much of a blogger and all but the other day while going through an emo-like work week that was as soul crushing as a work week can get (and I love my work generally) I spent some time in the car driving to and fro and thinking about music.

When I was a little kid I wanted to be a musician. I went as Peter Criss for Halloween three years in a row starting in kindergarten. I had a Mickey Mouse Club drum set. In third grade I started taking drum lessons from this great drummer in his early 20s. Took a few lessons then, as was popular for musicians in the late 70s, he OD'd and I kinda lost interest in the drums. Weird for a little kid to try to grapple with that one.

In 4th or 5th grade I decided I wanted to learn the banjo. I have no idea why. I lived in Brockton Mass. I should have wanted to learn to play... more »

Some one/group has an anti Humane Society "watchdog" website.

It looks fairly innocuous when you first look at it. Just a collection of publicly available financials and stuff with the appearance of being pro-animals and just holding a big NGO accountable to it's mission. Then if you tease it out a little it appears to critique the Humane Society as far-left "animal rights" group, compares it to the much more controversial PETA and lists a bunch of animal shelters saying the website doesn't distinguish between kill and no-kill shelters but the spot check I did was all kill shelters (spot check not definitive).

I didn't set out to make a point here really. I saw that +Sean Bonner posted a cool pic of Doris Day wearing a shirt that said "Be kind to animals or I'll kill you" and I looked for the pic and her animal rescue... more »

I didn't set out to make a point here really. I saw that +Sean Bonner posted a cool pic of Doris Day wearing a shirt that said "Be kind to animals or I'll kill you" and I looked for the pic and her animal rescue organization's 990 came up in the Google image search, which led me to this odd website that is very well made and seemingly a front (in my uneducated and mostly humble opinion).

Anyway, I sometimes go on little 'down the rabbit hole' like research tangents when I'm listening to music in the early morning. I thought this one was odd enough to interest a couple of people.

Here's some opposition info on Humane Watch:

http://www.firstthings.com/blogs/secondhandsmoke/2010/02/16/humane-watch-launches-to-keep-eye-on-humane-society-of-the-united-states/

There's a bunch more but I'll stop there.

Conclusions? Humane Watch is a well-funded creepy animal industry propaganda and lobbying front group.

So Niblet, our dog went into Grand Mal seizures on Saturday. I rushed her to our emergency vet clinic (http://www.vcahospitals.com/five-corners) who got her stabilized. They're always awesome. But they recommended a specialist, Seattle Veterinary Specialists. Niblet started seizing along the way there but we made it.

SVS diagnosed her within 20 mins, at least the cause of the seizures if not the cause of the cause, super low glucose levels. Did the tests over the following two days. They call us at every shift change with an update and call us with updates if anything changes. I've never felt more informed and confident in a medical team. They blow the doors off any number of human medical teams.

Anyway, Nibs just got out of surgery. I got called by the internist, the surgeon and the front desk as she was going under. After surgery the surgeon and the anesthetist both called me... more »

Niblet had a nodule removed from a lymph node, 30% of her pancreas removed and had a biopsy done on her liver. She's resting comfortably and tonight will tell us if she'll be ok or not.

However, it turns out... this was the best veterinary experience in the world and SVS has been absolutely amazing.

Hang tough nibs. We love you.___

Learning the banjo and other related things:

I'm not much of a blogger and all but the other day while going through an emo-like work week that was as soul crushing as a work week can get (and I love my work generally) I spent some time in the car driving to and fro and thinking about music.

When I was a little kid I wanted to be a musician. I went as Peter Criss for Halloween three years in a row starting in kindergarten. I had a Mickey Mouse Club drum set. In third grade I started taking drum lessons from this great drummer in his early 20s. Took a few lessons then, as was popular for musicians in the late 70s, he OD'd and I kinda lost interest in the drums. Weird for a little kid to try to grapple with that one.

In 4th or 5th grade I decided I wanted to learn the banjo. I have no idea why. I lived in Brockton Mass. I should have wanted to learn to play... more »

Learning the banjo and other related things:

I'm not much of a blogger and all but the other day while going through an emo-like work week that was as soul crushing as a work week can get (and I love my work generally) I spent some time in the car driving to and fro and thinking about music.

When I was a little kid I wanted to be a musician. I went as Peter Criss for Halloween three years in a row starting in kindergarten. I had a Mickey Mouse Club drum set. In third grade I started taking drum lessons from this great drummer in his early 20s. Took a few lessons then, as was popular for musicians in the late 70s, he OD'd and I kinda lost interest in the drums. Weird for a little kid to try to grapple with that one.

In 4th or 5th grade I decided I wanted to learn the banjo. I have no idea why. I lived in Brockton Mass. I should have wanted to learn to play guitar and grow up to be Angus Young or something. Anyway, there wasn't anyway to learn the banjo (or afford one) at that time and my mom had an old acoustic guitar. So I learned guitar. And lost interest because it was an acoustic guitar and everyone around me was playing electric and into metal (I still love OZZY but I did make it out of Brockton without his name tattooed on my knuckles!).

A few years later I took up the guitar again. I got ok. I had fronted a few hardcore bands. That was fun, but I started learning guitar. I got into a band in highschool called UPF (Utopian Police Force) that was pretty eclectic and fun. Kind of a jam band with overtones of bar rock, the velvet underground, punk and the Dead. Weird band. Loved it. +Paula Spellacy remembers that band. I got kicked out for being practice-lazy. :)

Anywho, I continued playing guitar and moved to western Mass. And formed a band called project FLATBOY. Kinda old-school punk. Little bit on the glam-punk side maybe. +Jason Uberti was the drummer. Loved that band. Super fun. Went through lineup changes and whatnot but still great fun. My bass player and I also built a little sound company called RoundSound at the time and I got into doing front of house and being a monitor tech. Also good stuff. That band broke up the way bands break up.

My views on music changed at that point. I started just playing with friends. Jammed with a cellist, did more interesting stuff but didn't really feel the need to be in a band playing for money or semi-fame or whatever. It took that long to fall in love with playing music for it's own sake. Too bad but I'm a slow learner. I also got into freelance journalism at this point. Doing a lot of music writing. Mostly for a little magazine called VMag (under the name Duke Aaron). Covered shows, did interviews, reviewed CD releases. That was fun too.

All of these experiences and my love of music combined to really expand my horizons. From the first record I bought with my own money, Alice Cooper's Schools Out to the first time I heard Bitches Brew to seeing Sun Ra before he died and changing my consciousness in one experience... I grew a lot.

At the same time I began working with mentally ill children who had a history of family sexual abuse. Amazing, painful work. But it was also a union job. And I became the steward and then chief steward. I fell in love with building power for workers. It was amazing. So I quit my job to become a union organizer and I decided to put away childish things.

For the next ten years I criss-crossed the country building unions. Baltimore, the Missouri Ozarks, Iowa, Chicago, Minnesota (in dead winter), San Diego, Vegas and finally here in Washington State (where I've also been sent to a lot of deployments in Cali). During this ten year period of struggle after struggle, fight after fight... I didn't play. I gave up a piece of me for the fight and never touched an instrument. Because I had given up childish things. To fight the good fight.

This year I got married. My life changed. +Kimberly Burton re-framed my thinking about the world. I can fight in the class-struggle, can have a healthy relationship and do things that are for me that make me happy. She, maybe unintentionally, got me to this point.

So I decided I was going to pickup that childhood ambition again. I bought a banjo. I started taking lessons. I'm not that good yet for sure, but I'm working on it. Playing the banjo brings me incredible joy. It's hard. I have to focus. I'm challenged. And I'm playing music again. For my own entertainment and needs and desires. It's fucking awesome.

I'm not sure why I wrote this out. But I am sure that there's never a need to put away childish things. It strips you of your humanity. Love something. Do it. Loving one thing doesn't take away from something else you think is important. It enhances you and everything you do.

Solid,
Duke

My friend +Gayge Operaista pointed out this awesome picture on indymedia from the police raid on Occupy SF!

My union dropped off rain ponchos to the folks at Occupy Seattle today. I'm hoping to be able to show up on Saturday.

But anyway, it appears that the Banjo Occupation is proceeding full steam on both coasts. I'm hoping my friends at Occupy Iowa don't forget a banjo or three.

Ok G+ banjo folks.

Closing in on 60 banjo players after a few days. Some pleasant, cool conversations happening between some - which is awesome. I've got to see videos of some of you playing your stuff - which is also awesome.

Anyway, if you make sure you keep your own banjo circle and we trade them back and forth every once in a while as we come across more folks... this might turn out to be a great thing.

Thing I've noticed about the people in this circle that I've had the chance to interact with is that there's a lot of different levels of playing and styles, very little pretense, super interesting posts, and really just a plain friendly group. For a beginner like me it's really nice to chat with people playing at a wide variety of experience levels. Learning a lot just from absorbing the banjo-talk. :)

Make sure you pass this circle along... more »

Make sure you pass this circle along to other banjo players, save it for yourself and post it back to your banjo circle when you get a chance if you can. I'll probably get to some more poking around for new people over the next week.

If you're seeing this for the first time in your G+ searches just comment on the post and I'll make sure you get added in too.

Thanks,
Duke

Calling all banjo pickers!

This collection of folks has grown a bit over the last two days. Glad to see it.:)

I thought it'd be nice to see if we can create a bit of a pickers community here on G+. If I got something wrong and you don't play the banjo, sorry, let me know I messed that up.

If you know some other banjo players here on G+ send them my way or drop their name in a comment below.

Nice to meet you all. :)

Might as well consider today the Birthday of Bluegrass...

Bill Monroe (September 13, 1911 – September 9, 1996) Monroe's performing career spanned 60 years as a singer, instrumentalist, composer and bandleader. He is often referred to as The Father of Bluegrass.
