Far South Reel, 1886

"I think it is fantastic! The fretted banjo up to concert pitch is approprate.  Tubs were out of fashion by 1886."

I just got your thimbles in the mail today. Thank you for such a speedy delivery! Now, to figure out how to play this beast with the five strings. :)

Joel-You sent me two sets of two picks. But, I think you only charged me for one. Could you please double check the sunshinewave order. And, if you've only charged me once can I send them back to the PO Box on the envelope?

Yes!
Is this Tad the banjo player who entertained Texans in the 1880's, between poker games and gunfights?
I was married last May, thus the additional last name. I retired and now live in Clayton, Ok, in the Kiamichi Mountains of the southeast part of the state.
More time for banjo playing!
I am working on frailing lately, but joined this site to see what I could learn re 1800's music.
