One thought on “Pickers Circle Sept 30, 2020”

  1. I attended the Sept 30th Zoom meeting, Picker’s Circle. I appreciated there was three or four pages we had to download and read before attending. I looked at these, and felt more confident about attending. I found it very helpful. both Charles and John Wade are good teachers, and both are patient. The other three guys (or was it four?) left the meeting after an hour and 15 minutes, so I found myself alone with Charles and John. They asked me to play something I was working on. they both gave helpful suggestions. they encouraged me to keep practicing, to go slower, and to break a song into pieces, and master each piece more surely. Thank-you.
