I did a little playing tonight, going outside with the Bell Banjo. It started at 50% RH, and as it grew darker, reached 68%. At about 65%, I could feel the pitch squirm a little bit, but no big issue. It got a little tubbier sounding then too, but was good. The skeeters came out then, so I came in. Anyway, having great fun watching conditions relative to the instrument and it's behavior.

Converse 1871

Hey, anybody else going to join the party? All this fresh meat.....

Marc is adding tabs gradually. If you guys don't read notation well, this is a chance to build a library on the Ning site.
