Too many to mention, though my 1964 Ode bought new from Chuck Ogsbury has been a steadfast bluegrass friend, and the 1908 Fairbanks Imperial Electric no. 0 that I acquired in 1968 remains a favorite.
Again, just too many to mention, though Mississippi John Hurt and Doc Watson remain all-time favorites. If you catch me passively listening to recorded music, it's probably Bach, Handel, Vivaldi, Telemann, Haydn, Mozart or Beethoven, though.

|I uploaded an MP3 yesterday to my BHO space to demonstrate a banjola, and, upon playing it back, I realized that it was playing very, very slowly, and hence in a lower key. I re-encoded it and uploaded it again, and it sounded right. (Well, as "right" as I would have expected).|
Now I had already had the chipmunk problem, where my recordings were playing at double speed (or thereabouts), but was unaware of the craaaaaawling playback. So anyway, I re-encoded and re-uploaded virtually all the files that were here (I think Julie Ann Johnson and Sarah Armstrong's Tune were the only non-affected recordings).
Needless to say, I lost all my comments and ratings, which is too bad, because they were nice comments and much appreciated!
Oh well. If you thought that I was playing really, really slowly, that's why; try 'em again. Sorry for the problem; I'm just glad I finally discovered it!

Zepp, I had the exact same problem happen to me on a song. I had to re-encode my mp3 and upload it again too. There are some comments about this somewhere on the help/website forums.
btw: I always have loved your banjo playing! :)
