For enthusiasts of early banjo
It was fun being a roving minstrel in between battles!
Albums: Moorpark, CA 2012
I decided to use an antique clothes pin as a capo. I fastened it with a rubber band (invented in the 1840's) Works for me!
Hey Terry I was there as well with Hampton Legion, Co. G "The Clairmont Rifles". I am new to it Moorepark 2011 was my first event. Got three events in this year. We should try and get together at one of these events next year.
I use it on occasion to play with other people in camp. I have my banjo tuned to the standard open G tuning. I don't use it very often.
Looks good, thanks for sharing!
Thank you for posting this!
Nicolas, Hope to see you out there next year! Our first event will be at the Antique Gas and Steam Engine Museum, Vista, CA in March 2013. Hope to see you there!
That trick is called a Spanish windlass (in some circles, anyway). Don't know about its use as a capo, but it's an old trick in boatbuilding and other maritime uses.
