Welcome to the banjo world of Ning, Ginny. There are usually some interesting discussions going on here, and we are lucky to have people like Jody, who knows a lot about all kinds of banjo playing,to share his thoughts with us. There is a lot of interesting stuff in the back pages, take a look. I have a couple of Cammeyer zither banjos and much Cammeyer music, Cam was quite a character. My favourite pieces written by the 'Great Cam' are 'Down Devon Way' 'Cornish Dance No2' 'Marche en Passant' 'Danse Bizarre' 'Don't Sigh, Don't Cry' 'Dustman's Picnic' . Cam also wrote two books, his autobiographical 'My Adventuresom Banjo' which is really a catalogue of the famous people for whom he performed and also, a booklet about banjo technique, called 'The Cultivation of the Hands' which is quite interesting, if you are interested in becoming what Cam would have called ' a finished player' finished, in what way, he doesn't say.Please post a photograph of your Cammeyer banjo, on the site.

Hi Ginny.

Welcome to classic-banjo.ning.There is probably enough information and opinion here to get your head spinning. But the most important thing is to have fun with your banjo.
