Jacko On Parade

Does anyone have a clue as to who Jacko is and what parade is referred to in the title? My only guess is Jack-O-Lantern, but I don’t know if that was a tradition in England when this piece was…Continue

"No, the concert has been postponed to 20 Feb. I’ll post the link here but you’d have to be up very late to see it in Europe. Showtime is 7:30pm Eastern US time... https://www.crowdcast.io/e/blacksmith-shop-concerts-5 Thanks for…"

"I believe what you are calling "methylated spirits" is called "denatured alcohol" in the US. I cannot see any benefit from you dipping your thumb in grain alcohol that has had poison added to keep people from drinking it. I think…"

"Thank you Brett! I’m off to the pharmacist to see if they carry methylated spirits. I know I’ve encountered meths many times in the UK but can’t recall seeing it here in the US. I appreciate your help!"

"Super glue has been used by some in the past. Perhaps you can sand the rough parts.  Another possibility is to use a thumb pick. That's what i would do.   I also would avoid slicing mandolins from now on.  They are nice…"

Help -- I've Sliced the Tip of my Right Thumb Off and I Have a Concert This Saturday...!

I can't be the first person this has happened to... Does anyone have any tips on how to heal my thumb up fast? I was using the mandolin slicer and lost about an eighth of an inch off the side of my right thumb that I use for playing. It wasn't too deep of a cut as it was mostly callus that went but there was some bleeding. It's bandaged up now, but I'm worried about my concert this Saturday, plus I have rehearsal with my accompanist this Thursday (three days from now...)Does anyone have any…See More

"According to what TBJ told Eli Kaufman, Jazzbo was his dog’s name. The bridge rasp/ head thump was the dog chasing his tail."

"Oh, okay thanks Jody.  I think Jazzbo was also a slang term for a sharply dressed black man.  "

"Carrie,  I seem to recall reading or hearing that Jazzbo was Tarrant Bailey Junior's pet dog and that parts of the tune  Jazzbo's Holiday depict him running in circles. "

carrie horgan replied to Aaron Jonah Lewis's discussion Jacko On Parade
"I think it refers to a military parade.  I'm English and Jacko doesn't have any connotations for me apart from as a nickname for Jack.  Hopefully, it's not a racial slur (Rastus on Parade, Jazzob's Holiday...)"

Hi Aaron, Thanks for the friends request. It's been a long spell getting through this Covid

pandemic - thank goodness for a banjo!  We're still shut down up here, but some places

are beginning to show signs of life.  Stay safe, stay well.  Regards, Becky
