Failing 2 Frail

Two and
Strum thumb
Four and
Strum thumb
One rhythm
Five strings
A million songs
Endless hours
A lifetime learning



  1. […] Failing 2 Frail […]

  2. LOL – you aren’t going to tell me your a Bluegrass fan are you?

    My husband use to play!

    (I don’t care for bluegrass, but I have learned to appreciate listening to it!)

  3. Bluegrass is the work of the Devil…. lol

    I’m learning, and I stress Learning, to Frail/Clawhammer in the Olde Timey Style… 🙂

  4. This is wonderful, WoeBegone. As a fellow frailer-in-training, I appreciate how artfully you captured the essence of frailing. A lifetime learning, indeed.

    I’m so glad Patrick posted your poem. I took up the banjo about the same time you did and had the same reaction to finger-picking ala Scruggs. Fortunately I found Tangier Sound and I’ve been learning v e r y s l o w l y ever since.

    We have something else in common: I did NaNoWriMo in 2007. I’ve vowed to revise that collection of words this year. (Revise may involve a pick ax and spade.) At least I’ve got 50,000 words to work with instead of facing a blank page. That’s a start.

    How brave of you to post your novel. I’ve only dipped into the prologue, but I’m intrigued. Keep going!

  5. Thanks for stopping by and commenting Blitz.

    I’m not really brave to post the novel. It’s more a constant reminder, so that I can’t ignore the fact that it needs doing.
