"Thank you so much Remi and Marc. That was the VERY BEST present for my birthday!
..and a very happy birthday to Remi too!
Everybody knows that the BEST Classic Banjo players were born on 20th May ;-)))"
"The 5 string Plectrum that I have seen in photos has the fifth string nut slot at the top of the neck. The modern luthiers call this a "tunnelled fifth" neck, it goes inside the neck by the nut is at the fifth fret."
LA MI LA MI LA,c'est ce qui est marqué sur la tombe d'un musicien qui était mort d'avoir trop mangé de pain de mie...dixit la mie l'a mis là...
J'ai pris contact avec tout ce petit monde, j'en connais déjà pas mal depuis un bail, les autres sont trés sympas.
Merci mon pote !
Hey, thanks! I like your version of the Morley too; I'll have to incorporate the octaves on the walkdown of the "D" section--sounds great. I'm doing my best to approximate William Ball's performance on that tune; have you heard it?
Hi Marc - I could not help but note that you were aware my father (Tom Barriball) played a "Clifford Essex Regal" banjo. How did you get to know my father? We, the family, have over more recent years lost an awful lot of photos and history in relation to our Father and my Brother in Leicester & I are trying to regain some of what has been lost. Anything you can tell me would be very much appreciated
