On the subject of 'haunted', how about this. I found this page from a Diary dated 1899 and it shows where a bloke bought some banjo strings from another bloke named R. Jones. Now that's really Spooky. Ray
Hi Carl, yes, I believe I tabbed it out last year. I haven't been near my home computer in a week (we've been doing a bunch of cleaning and it is buried at the moment) but I'll check for it tonight. ===Marc
Thanks a ton Carl -
It's been kind of slow going but I hope it'll be done this year. I'm having to squeeze it in between making a living with guitar. Its hard to find recording people that don't want to make it sound like a bluegrass banjo - I get a lot of puzzled looks in the studio.
I think I saw a post on here that said you collected old music journals - I'm looking for a library somewhere that has some copies of Gatcomb's Banjo and Guitar Gazette. The Library of Congress has it on Microfilm but I'd love to be able to look at some actual issues. You ever gotten your hands on any of these?
With the festive season drawing near, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for creating the Ning site. I am sure that everyone who has contributed and learned from it, appreciates the fun that we have all had over the past months. So to you and all the members, Merry Christmas and have a safe one. Ray
Thanks, Carl. The audio files do get 'lost' a bit on the site compared to the video. I simply don't prepare in advance enough to make the videos - meaning the battery in my camera is always dead when I come to record! So I default to audio ... Note to self: recharge battery when I get home!
