Thanks Ian - I hope you are enjoying learning classic banjo.  Are you new to playing the banjo or have you migrated over from another style of banjo playing? Let me know if I can be of any help.

I've been listening to Olly Oakley on this site - I'd never heard him play material like 'The Policeman's Holiday' or 'Under The Double Eagle' before; Scan played them, all parts. David
