GUEST,lynnt What Banjo Do You Play? (186* d) RE: What Banjo Do You Play? 26 Jan 09

My sweetie Richard has just begun to throw himself into French & Indian War reenactment, so in support of that has bought himself a cute 4-string gourd banjo made by a retired gentleman out in the Seattle area. Richard already plays blues guitar, and is teaching himself to play this. It's got a surprisingly nice tone for such a primitive instrument, and the maker did a nice job on the maple neck and ebony tuning pegs; hope we don't need to change out the head anytime soon since it's held on with brass tacks. Now if we could only keep the cord that attaches the base of the wooden string-anchor from snapping whenever the temperature changes more than 5 degrees!
