This is the result of a long process of cloning experiments with which Mike intended to create an army of Mikes in order to set up a Minstrel troupe without having to share the proceeds with anybody but himself (or his clones). He brought his first success with him as entertainers during the Great War.<br /> <br /> It is often said that HMS Indefatigable was destroyed at Jutland by two shells from SMS Von der Tann -- an unlikely story. In fact, the crew scuttled the Indefatigable as they couldn't bear the two Mikes' dreadful playing! (It is rumoured that the clone Mike survived and is currently Chief Royal Banjoist to the King of Tonga).<br /> <br /> OOC: This is just a quick attempt at recording the first part of the first and second banjo parts and putting them together in one video -- unfortunately I simply played the first, then the second part, so it is a bit of a double-blind test and the timing's a bit off at times. Oh, well.
