New Converse

Keeping to my promise that I would not carpet bomb this site with the new Frank Converse Book, I posted Bisbee's favorite Jig. Yes...it is an awesome minor tune. Hope you like it, and then try it.

Good Days

These  are some good times here. I especially enjoy all the new video posts. For those that are doing some of your first, you have set a benchmark to reflect upon as you watch your playing grow and improve. Good playing all around! Nobody should ever worry that "that tune has been done". Just play and post. Everybody gains.

Hey, Greg, Tim et al.

Is there a Harpers Ferry event being planned for anytime in the future?

I'm feeling definite withdrawl symptoms after missing the June weekend.

Hey mark, I saw that you stopped by the shop. I'm sorry I missed you. Did you have business here in souhtern Michigan? We should certainly get together. Hope you enjoy your new Bell.

Pupils and Amateurs?

The front of the Buckley New Banjo Method of 1860 states that the book's pieces are arranged "for the use of pupils and amatuers". Holy crap!!! What did the professionals do? That stuff is not all that simple.
