Carl Anderton is not only one of our very best players but also very knowledgeable about all things Minstrel Banjo. Where are you Carl? Come back! You have gifts to offer - I mean its almost Christmas time and all. Maybe we can sign a petition. Carl - remember that I know where you live, so don't make me come and get you!
Where's the petition. I'll sign.
Tim and I expressed the same sentiments a couple days ago!
The siren call of wire strings, Hawaiian guitar picked banjo (also known as Scruggs' style) and bluegrass music has taken him from us.
Instead of "tubs" it is now tone rings.
He has added an extra thimble (both worn backwards) and zither ring to protect his fingers from the wire.
He just needs time to work through this phase.
I tried to point out that Bill Monroe did not invent bluegrass...
I heard a rumor that Carl was spotted performing somewhere in Paramus New Jersey recently, with his new band...
