Great tone, Tapis! Is that banjo a Nechville?

I included some information about the banjo at the end of my accompanying comments. I was trying to show that a modern banjo can as good as a vintage job (better??). They are certainly easier to play. The radiused fingerboard on the Nechville makes things less tiring for the left hand.

The Ning site does not display the comments except the first few words. To read the entirety of what is written one must click on the Youtube sign in the lower right hand corner.

I plead "Not Guilty"

NING software does some stupid things, and curtailing the Youtube text is just one of them.

There is an easy fix though.  Firstly ADD the video and then REPLY to the post and paste in all the text that you entered on the Youtube upload (copy/paste from your youtube video is easy).

Hey Presto, You have added a video and the first post about it is your full details.

(Yes, I know it is a pain in the A*se, but blame NING)

In case you were wondering: here is another of Emile Grimshaw's banjo and piano duets, though in this case it's not far off being a piano solo to banjo accompaniment. As a 'ride', the piece depicts a jolly, festive group progressing at brisk pace through the countryside. In this case the group and/or the countryside is Mexican.
To show that you don't have to have a vintage instrument to play the classical banjo repertoire, the instrument is a 1997 Nechville Nextar Maple, the head is a Remo Fiberskyn and the strings are Chris Sands' heavies.
