Hi Trevor,

Thanks for the posts and welcome to Classic Banjo. I see that you have a metronome...  cursed instruments of the devil !  :-)

My computer crash mayhem continues and I am still recovering all the data that I can from backup drives. One is now in transit to France, so I hope they can fix it!

You have made a wise choice in taking up Classic banjo, let's hope that we can help you!

Ian, thereallyniceman

I remember you Trevor. If you look at my web site your pic is still there. You could come to the next one in Preston 2012.

Help is always available.
