Thread Name: 5th String Capo
Subject: RE: 5th String Capo
I got your e-mail, Leadfingers... thanks. It looks like it would work, but I think you need English staples... Amurican ones is too small. I've used small screws, and they work fine... just haven't gotten around to putting one in my newer banjo... the trick is finding screws small enough. I have a couple that I took out of the face of an old clock.


Thanks for the suggestion, Lead..

And who ever came up with all the bad jokes about banjo players? That's DEFINITELY a Brit thing. There's a Charlie Brown cartoon where Charlie is talking about all the problems and sorrows in the world, and Linus says "Every baby should be given a banjo when they're born."

I second that emotion.
