it would. I played it again quklciy becuase I was afraid I would lose it. A few days later I can tell much improvement and I look forward to continuing my improvement in learning the song well. I guess since I could not control the things that were broken at the moment and get them all repaired in a timely manner, I looked at my banjo as the one thing I can control and I was going to be in charge of it and not it in charge of me. I know that there is still a long winding road up ahead of trials and challenges of learning the banjo. But this latest experience gave me tools to overcome those future frustrating times and keep practcing until the light bulb comes on.
