Hello Tom,
Always good to see another Virginian in the group. My family is actually from Halifax Coumty, so that's even better! Keep up with the music, sounding good.

Hi Tom,

I liked your Hard Times/Jordan. You are making a really good start, take your time and articulate the notes.

Are you new to banjo altogether? I started straight in on a fretless banjo, and I'm curious about other people starting that way as well.

Yea, you've really got a good position. You are way ahead of me when I started...I was totally messed up. I never saw anybody do it, so I ended up with some habits that took a long winter of work to undo. Spend stime with the Converse combinations. They are a great help, and pick up where the Briggs' leaves off.

Hey, thank you very much. It is banjo #3, and the only one of the three that I have left. I had a 16" head, boucher style that a good friend of mine wanted before I had it finished. I told him I still want to get some pics of it.
I'll try to get something on video...I'll have to get my wife to help; I'm not too techy.

The head is calfskin; it's just a very translucent head. I'm waiting to expend some Gamut strings on it and replace the nylgut...should give it even more deep pop. Thanks again.
