Hi, I sent you a friend request so I could ask about the banjo in your profile pic--I didn't realize I could simply leave a comment here asking about it (I just joined, still learning my way around).  Otherwise, I wouldn't have sent a friend request to someone I didn't know, so please feel free to respond via comments, no need to accept the request since you don't know me.  :-)
