looks like a great spot to share some tunes
I have a hard enough time fingering a diatonic fretboard. The idea of playing anything fretless makes my ears ache. My hat's off to you . . .
Bflat, a highland bagpiper would have fit right in
We were playing everything in Bflat that day Rob. :)
Good looking couple of musicians there! However... y'all need a dulcimer player. What keys are you playing in?
I know Robin- I just can't stop myself from having fun playing various instruments- dulcimers, epinettes, banjers, bones, penny whistles, limberjacks, lyras, jouhikkos...
Hmm... maybe i should call this a 'walkabout fretless banjimer' or something ? hehe heh
Umm, that's not a mountain dulcimer. haha
What a sweet picture of you two, Strumelia!
This is a fretless minstrel style 1880s reproduction banjo by James Hartel of NY. (I have the bridge temporarily slid way up inorder to play with Brian in Bflat)
Great picture, Strumelia! Nice banjo...who made it?
