"Bless you Mike! Galop de Concert is one of those tunes which I call a comfort tune. It falls off the fingers for me better than other ones. Regarding fingering I always approach with what feels comfortable and tend to use alot of snaps."
"Yes, I played one once. It was a great banjo, it felt nice under the hands. It had a nice wide neck up by the nut just nice for note snapping with no worries of your fingers falling off the side! Just a nicely made banjo."
"Thanks Rob! Your recordings are one of the things that inspired me to take up Classic style banjo... I also gave fingerpicks a second chance after hearing the brilliant tone you get with them!
