If you are ever so inclined, maybe make a few more videos like your "Selections from Septimus Winner's New Primer for the Banjo" for us beginners.  I found that very helpful.  You know, the easy stuff.

Thanks, Mark! I am inclined but just lack the time. Have you had a chance to work through our instructional videos? http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com/page/lessons 

If they are in anyway helpful, please let us know!

Hi Greg,

Glad you are still plunking away.  I still have the Boucher and built a copy to play at living history.  The old one sounds and plays better.  I recently bought a Vega Whyte Laydie 1927 plectrum and converted it to five-string.  I use it for more modern playing.  I have an ancient Dobson with nylon strings and it plays great.

Greg, thank you for encouraging me to come to the Antietam Early Banjo Gathering. I am just begining to be exposed to what you might consider "standard" music (most of what I have played has been hymns, and a few of the most popular tunes such as Home Sweet Home, and Long, Long Ago) however, I believe it would be a wonderful experience. I was tentitively asked to lead the Church service at Corbit's Charge on June 24, however, they have not yet confirmed this. At worst I would miss Sunday. Also, I see that there will be a class in reference to guitar, which I do also play, and am very interested in learning more about period aspects. Thank you again.

Hey Greg! Hope you're staying warm. Finally getting around to order a banjo from Terry Bell and I remember you discussing some new "red" strings that have come out recently, but I cannot seem to remember the specifics. Any information you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Greg,

I am trying to determine if any fretted banjos (as we know them today) existed during the War Between the States 1861-1865.  All I ever see are fretless ones.

Hey Greg. Made it all the way through Juba today! Not perfectly but I understand what I am doing. Already saving for the banjo upgrade. ;-)

Thanks Greg. I am not really one for joining groups, but thought this looked interesting. The funny thing is hours after joining I was contacted by someone who has a vintage fretless banjo to sell. I haven't bought a fretless banjo in about twenty years.
