For the record, Do you know how hard it is to find songs that begin with certain letters And are written for a banjo??? Well,for X, this is the best I could do under the time span I had. So hopefully you will remember it is a part of American history and this is not done to offend anyone. History has many lessons. I played it slowly to reflect the ‘times past’ and not as a carefree, joyful tune. I will have a different set of songs ready if I participate in this blog next year. Who knows? Maybe I’ll take up the fiddle again?? After all, I have 2 daughters who play and I even took lessons for a time. Maybe they’ll accompany me sometime. Ya just never know.
What I’d really like to give you are my Xamples of lessons learned as a mother/childcare provider. These have no particular order. I hope you enjoy!
