Welcome aboard. I hold you soley responsible for getting me involved in this whole minstrel banjo mess all those years ago. There are more opinions here than there are members, so there's never a dull moment. I'll look forward to your perspective on the many topics dealt with here.
I don't know exactly what a gift is, either, since so far I haven't received any, but I'll try to give you one just to see what happens. Well, I tried to send you a welcome mat, but a message popped up and said I would have to pay real money to do that. So, at least for now, just pretend I sent you a welcome mat. After all, it's the thought that counts, isn't it? As you may have already figured out, I haven't quite figured this all out myself.
I bought a green pot Boucher from you and then you fixed another makers banjo for me, I will leave off the makers name. It has been a couple of years so I can't blame you for forgetting. Anyway Im glad your aboard as you were a big influence for my turn to Minstrel Banjo.
Hi Bob, I recently bought a Sweeney banjo you made in the 90s for Carson Hudson Jr. I've had it for just a couple weeks, but I'm absolutely in love with it. Thank you so much! And thanks to Carson for selling it to me!
