"Well done, Dante! I also appreciated the piano work. Very good accompanist and very complementary to your performance...that is sadly rare these days. I hope we hear more from you. Perhaps some banjo duets with Mr. Aaron?"

"And I should add that of course, you also have good rhythm, excellent rhythm. I mentioned the teacher because so often in the past accompanists have played mechanically or worse. This pianist is actually listening to the banjo and that is a fine…"

"Well I think the piano score was good and that your school music teacher has good rhythm. One small correction, Dante, if you don't mind: what you played was not a "song". Songs have words. Songs are sung. What you played was an…"

"Hi Mr. Jody! Thank you. That was my music teacher at my elementary school playing piano but my banjo teacher Mr. Aaron wrote the piano piece for the song. I had fun playing a duet because that was the first time I got to play a duet with somebody.…"

"That's good news, Dante. I didn't know Don Reno taught Tony Ellis but I think they were both from North Carolina. I always liked Don Reno's playing since the first time I heard him when I was about 12 years old. Now I'm 75 but I…"

"-Dear Mr jody You were right it was a false string so we got it replaced and my recording king sounds great now with nylon strings. The guy in the shop that fixed my banjo said that the false string that I got was one in a million. I also got to…"

Jody Stecher replied to Dante Flores's discussion Hi, I'm new here!
"Dante, another thing you can try is to replace the first string with a light gauge steel string but leave the other nylon strings on if they play in tune. About 100 years ago there were several classic banjo players in England, good ones, who strung…"

"Dante, It does sound that you may have a bad string. Setup is very different with nylon and banjos aren't the best at intonation to begin with. I would move treble end of the bridge (angle the bridge) until it will intonate correctly and then…"
