Hi Pat, Photos shouldn't take too long to upload but they should be banjo related. If they weren't they would not be accepted by the moderators. Do you have any pics of banjos or pics of you playing?…Continue

Baby's first classic banjo video

"Brilliant, Jocko, your first video done. I look forward to viewing many more. It's very quiet round here at the moment with Ian's arm out of action and who would have thought that I'd miss the sound of the banjo so much!!! :)…"

I see that we have another new member - a very warm welcome to you and to all the other recent people who have signed up to this discussion group. I’ve not been here for quite a while as I work much better ‘behind the scenes’ as the reallynicelady. I like to remain in the background rather than in the spotlight.No, I don’t play the banjo but I do hear about everything that happens on this site. I witness the hard work and enthusiasm of the reallyniceman, who strives, day after day to bring…See More

The College Rag

"Ian said that there was a great sounding banjo here so I came to have a listen. Yep, I have to agree and also a very catchy tune. (I had to look up brain fart!) Well played. I look forward to hearing more. And Ian, if you're reading this - no…"

thereallynicelady commented on Jon Mills's blog post Si Bheag Si Mhor (composed O'Carolan, arranged for banjo Jon Mills)
"What a beautiful, haunting piece - now does the title mean 'She begs for more' or 'big mountain, little mountain'? Let's have mhor please."

Richard William Ineson commented on thereallynicelady's blog post Show me yours and I'll show you mine
"A really beautiful banjo, I bought one of these top grade Stewarts, in Scarborough, in a junk shop, in about 1967, for £4. 10 shillings - £4. 50p new money, this had an elephant's head carved on the heel, which I've never seen…"

Show me yours and I'll show you mine

Oh, sorry, I can't because I just play the piano and not a banjo. Tell you what I'll show you Ian's instead. You've all seen it before but here it is in all its glory without the distraction of the bow tie! It's a Clifford Essex Wood Hoop Special.…

Next?

The practice for the ‘new’ piece is now underway and OH is in the study working out fingering and playing short phrases over and over again. It takes only a short while for him to choose what to play and then it’s all systems go to master the music. I was wondering how  members here go about choosing their ‘next’ piece. Do you flick through the music you have already, do you arrange your own, do you adapt a piece you’ve heard or do you raid the music here on Classic Banjo Ning? How do you…

Normality

Things are pretty much 'back to normal' here. Study door is shut, sounds of banjo music heard and OH only emerges for cups of tea or a meal. Something is afoot, though. How do I know? OH tends to focus on one thing at a time as you can probably tell by his time away from here. The roof took priority. Now he has another project to occupy him, which involves long periods at the computer. This project involves much hard work plus the added bonus of banjo music and,…

Similarities

Having been to 'Dancing Time at the Library' yesterday and dancing in the man's position, (because there were not enough men to go round), a thought suddenly occurred to me.
