"Van Bramer's Jig" (from Dan Emmett's Musical Manuscript)

"I didn't have any "standard" when I learned this.  I kinda like it slow or at least slower than I tried to play it, but then I tend to like everything on the slow side.  Fast music tends to make listening uneasy rather than…"

Santa Claus needs to bring you a nice video camera for Christmas this year. Then you could make youtube videos that we could all enjoy! (Assuming you've been good).

Thanks, Greg. I will try to add material to the site over time, maybe even a more up-to-date photo and a better picture of that banjo.

If the Add as Friend button worked, I'd add you. It's blue on my screen -- only the green buttons work. (Well, some of the red ones do.) I assume Bill Gates owns Ning, and makes life here hard for Mac users.

Greg, Thanks for posting those videos, I thoroughly enjoyed them. They are lessons in this art, and are worth studying.

Will do. Right now we're back in the studio and hoping to have the CD out by February. We'll be back out on the road soon and we'll see you then.

Hey Greg... No, problem... I knew I would see you somewhere, sometime. I'd appreciate any feedback, and also I'd like to talk about akontings. I saw the vid of you in Florida last March and had lots of questions.
