Hey Carl..I don't play banjo but I have a few friends that do. I want to say that playing with you and all the folks that weekend was one of my favorite jams. I thank you so much for the kind words about my tambo skills, and same back at ya. The Shakers are doing well recording live stuff now. Since the loss of our master jawbone astroudinair, who sits along side of Elvis now to educate him about da roots, I have taken on da study ob de jaw bone, and ams hbbin fun wid hit. Any time you guys are in the Gettysburg area look us up. Your pard King
Hey Carl! Happy New Year! December was so crazy I didn't realize all the action had slipped over to here - good to be back. I settled right in last night to watch that great video you put up - the visit with George W. Thanks!!
Thanks for the welcome, Carl. Spent part of today looking through the forum topics. Some quite interesting. Still curious where to buy gut strings and which sizes...at least one site in colorado had LOTS of options! After I've spent more time here I'll feel more comfortable posting! Thanks for suggesting that I should be a member here. One of these days I'll post pics of that Brawly instrument.
Yes, it was a very good jam. Ive started trying to learn some minstrel tunes myself and am slowly going through Joseph Weidlich's "Early Minstrel Banjo" book. Seems to have a lot of tunes in it. Are they hosting the EBG again in Antietam this year? If so, I will definitely be there. Early banjo has become more a priority in my life recently. Good to see you still around and playing music!!
Thanks, Carl. I wear an original 1850s tophat but it's faux beaver over paper mache. I live in fear that I'll get caught in the rain with it sometime. It would sure make a good, mis-shapen minstrel show topper after it melts in the rain!
