If you want to master somebody, you know, lock in on the one that has the most CDs. Because that'll give you the most material. And bury yourself in it. But don't expect to play with anybody who wants to hear you play Blind Blake, 500 tunes. I don't even wanna listen to a whole Blind Blake tape half the time... - Jerry Ricks, Port Townsend 97

I recall you mentioning you were working on banjo playing a while back. If you're still playing banjo, and it has steel strings on it, try switching to Nylgut strings. I reckon they sound better, and are much kinder on the fingertips doing all those clawhammer slides in sawmill tuning.
