Minstrel Banjo

For enthusiasts of early banjo

Got through the post this morning The Grape Vine Twist by a certain Mr Twiss...can't stop listening to it. Highly recommended. I got mine from CD Baby, no hassle. This boy can play. The tunes are all worth repeated hearing, and Tim has added some complementary percussion. 5 Stars!

Also got a Fred Kelly Freedom Pick, the large Derlin type. It fits snuggly over the finger and can be utilised in either direction, down stroke or up pick, and sounds better than anything else I've tried. No way is it going to fall off, but doesn't feel too tight. OK, not 'authentic' but it gets me playing stroke style, which otherwise I feel is impossible.

Still listening to Tim's disc! Love the sound of the gourd banjo on the first and last track...

I just love the "Narragansett Jig" track (and I'm stealing that chromatic bass run)...but the whole thing is uniformly excellent. It is a 'must have' disc.

It's a shame these comments don't appear on the Latest Activity box on the Main page. We don't have this problem on the ning CB site...
