j0_77 mellow banjo (24) RE: BS: mellow banjo 13 Oct 99

Frailing close to the bridge makes any banjo ring but clawhammer OVER the end of the fretboard is more clunky - Tu Ba Phones set up well are a great sound but it is rare to find an original these days. Common practice is to replace the neck - for a wider fret board and to repair warping.

Granpa Jones, Uncle Dave Macon ......Tom P, Frank Proffit, Pete Seger, Mike Seger, Dwight Diller, Alec Slater, Sarah Grey ...Doc Watson! ... this is a small smaple of styles out there.
