Dear Tom:

Thank you for your encouragement. I placed an order with Bell Minstrel Banjo for a Bouscher model banjo. I am suppose to receive it by the end of January next year. I can't wait to start learning how to play it.

Thanks Tom.  It is a great site, the only drawback so far is the "unexpected error" I get for timing out.

Thanks for the kind welcome, Tom.  I'm looking forward to spending some time hanging about here.  Since I live about 40 minutes from Appomattox there's a good chance I'll meet some of you in person some time.

Thank you, Tom. I am on the brink of picking up a kit from the nice folk at BackYardMusic, and am still torn between the short and standard lengths, and fretted or fretless. I have a good ear, but wonder if my first should have "automatic" notes via frets, and then I'll know where to put the fingers on the fretless, after I am familiar with the frets. Any thoughts? Aside from early ease, do I sacrifice anything else by fretlessness? I know I gain microtonal capacity and sliding, which do appeal to me a lot.....
Thanks again, and regards,
David
