With Irish-y tunes like this, it's no wonder people eventually found frets to be a necessity!

Good playing, Paul.  i love that canteen gourd banjo of yours!

I got to see and hold this banjo last year at a campout gathering, right after Paul got it- it's so comfy due to the canteen gourd's flattish back, and the maple flaming is beautiful.   Not surprising it's a real 'go to' banjo.   :)
