"That stab at the 7th fret, 1st string is so common that you might as well "Buckley down" and get it comfortable. ;-) Yah, Tim's version is pretty close to the original...but it is the way Tim plays it. For example, I might play…"

"I've put it on my calendar. I sorely miss going to AEBG. We've just moved to SC which puts this one at around 6hrs away. Hopefully I can get things straight around here to be able to attend!"

First, the disclaimer: I know not what I do. I may have disremembered, misquoted, misplaced, waxed hyperbolic or simply forgot. No spotted owls were eaten without the proper Mornay sauce having been ladled properly over each. Rolling verbosity knob to 12...

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.  :-)
