Good morrow chaps,

                  I was looking round for a tenor banjo recently, and have had an absolute corker made by a local chap. Have a nosey at this: -

Cracking instrument by the looks of it. I've played a couple of Eric's mandolins, and they were good too. Well bought Sir!

What a strange effect that Banjo has had on Ted, he sounds like Jimmy Saville!! (As it appens)

Well posted Ged. I should have linked the Hurdy Gurdy film link yesterday.

Nice one,Paco. Now it's just a question of playing the right notes, and then learning to play them in the right order.

Now, I don't know about these clickie things, but Paco Rabane, if you want to see a very attractive picture of a very attractive John Grey tenor banjo being played by a very attractive very young man, see if you can get to my Facebook thingy. This is the address that seemed to be being displayed when I was looking at the picture. I know there's some clever way of making it go blue but I can't remember what it is.

Hola Greg,

Thanks for the Youtube links: just spent a happy 15 minutes drooling over the hurdy-gurdies! None of Nigel eaton in Blowzabella as far as I could see?
I believe they are fiendishly expensive, and quite challenging to play? Any thoughts or knowledge of this?
