"I usually played "Jake Bacchus' Jig" using the open 3rd string. That way the next note is a "hammer-on" slur (even though it isn't actually notated as a slur of any kind). It simply makes the piece flow easier for me."

"I used to play it...but it has been so long that I would have to re-learn it. BTW, I have finally and officially retired (as of last Friday). As soon as I we can get this house sold and move to our vacation/retirement home in Myrtle Beach, SC,…"

First, the disclaimer: I know not what I do. I may have disremembered, misquoted, misplaced, waxed hyperbolic or simply forgot. No spotted owls were eaten without the proper Mornay sauce having been ladled properly over each. Rolling verbosity knob to 12...

I had several things in mind whilst…

Thanks Marc, taken me a while to get over here, I'll just sit at the back with a 7-string z-b and have a pint while you lads get on with it.

Hi Marc, I bought you a shot for buying the Converse songster, it's the least I could do ;^} Have a Merry Christmas.

Hi Marc.  Thanks for the comment.  I am not sure how the site works with friends and whatnot, so I am likely to be clumsy.  There was a discussion about a video I posted on YouTube last year that I just discovered and felt I should respond to, so I just finished going on and on about it.  I sure hope that doesn't wear out my welcome.  It is so interesting for me to discover this vibrant community since I have been so isolated in my work over the years and have actually started performing banjo music again after decades (!) of neglect.  Anyway, thanks for the kind words.  Paul

Hi, I sent you a friend request so I could ask about the banjo in your profile pic--I didn't realize I could simply leave a comment here asking about it (I just joined, still learning my way around).  Otherwise, I wouldn't have sent a friend request to someone I didn't know, so please feel free to respond via comments, no need to accept the request since you don't know me.  :-)
