I enjoy your excellent playing on your CDs very much. Keep up the great work. Back in the sixties I had to make a career decision between being a banjo player or a lute player, and chose the lute. Happily, the lute has taken me from the Kennedy White House to Carnegie Hall and all over the world, but now that I'm retired I have the time to pursue my first love again, the classic banjo. I just recently discovered this site and enjoy the discussions and I hope I can make myself useful on it. I'm also intrigued about the ABM.
