Electricfied Minstrel Mutations

"Aside from the modern context, I really liked the looseness and playfulness of the piece. I think it embodied more of the spirit of minstrel tunes than most videos posted here. Nice job Tim!"

Hi Rick,


I am glad you find my book useful.  IU am glad to be here but I am still trudging around looking for what to do.  I need more time.  Too many banjos to build which takes up my time.  Keep on pickin'.   Bob Flesher
