"Hi Brett, the story came from Van Eps and Paul Cadwell.  Cadwell even claimed to confirm the story as he was playing it at a party that Nola attended and they discussed it.  Walter Kaye Bauer told Galen Wilkes that it was originally titled…"

"What a great performance.  It does suit banjo well.  Although I think you'll find Nola was written for Arndt's wife Nola (nee Locke) as an engagement present, not specifically for Fred van Eps.  It was a huge hit in about…"

"Jerron, I just love the way you can switch from right-handed playing on one recording to left-handed playing on another!  And where did you find a left-handed FVE  flush-fret?  They must be as rare as hen's…"

"Awesome! (Literally.) The great thing about these recordings by Jerron is that you can actually see him play it! Listening to a recording is not the same as watching someone with utter self-confidence rattle faultlessly through one of the more…"

"Well really !!!! What a superb performance from everyone and Covid safe too ;-) This is live playing at its very best. Thank you so much. For me, here in the UK, social distancing has never been a problem. As soon as I play my banjo everyone…"

"That was one impressive performance of a great tune. I didn't know about its connection with FVE, it just shows there's still lots to learn about classic banjo, even at the age of 72.....All the best..Steve."

Fretboard extensions

Have you tried a long neck, such as a Christy?

I have not. I'm certain they wouldn't have the same tone and play ability as regular banjos with an extended fretboard. Another thing is the quality of the build. Most of the banjos are like our professional models. I can't find one of these with a big enough pot or a tone ring.
