My main banjo has a Bacon pot w/ a wooden tone ring; the neck was created by Will Fielding. Next, I play a no name skin head-gut strung 1880's banjo I re-built and set-up. Then after I play those; I have about 12 more banjos I like to fool with from the 1880's +....never a boring moment for me! Love those old no-name fretless banjos!
Tommy Jarrell, Matokie Slaughter, Ray Alden, Mac Benford, Django Reinhardt, Uncle Dave Macon, Jimmie Rodgers, Eric Weissberg, Fred Cockerham, Richie Stearns, Adam Hurt, Wade Ward....and so on....oh yeah: JERRY GARCIA IN 1971-1974.....wow!

Playing the banjo for ever it seems yet is seems like I just began! I began playing guitar in the 8th grade and got a banjo soon after that...I played mostly guitar until the early ྖs then focused all my energy on BANJO! I play in the frailing & knockdown style...not so much Clawhammer...more basic back beat happening (I think). I stay away from tradition because I don't know any and figure things out by listening non-stop to the "masters" of Oldtimey music. I don't work at playing the banjo; it just is something that happens simply for me. Find full mp3's at my web-site www.banjofrailer.com .....I like to keep the music FREE....hope you enjoy my style and banjo playing....it's my passion.
