Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Earl, Don, Ralph, JD, Jim Mills. I like the "old stuff" and older styles. I admire many of today's younger "progressive" artists, but I have always enjoyed collecting records from the 1920s through to the early 1960s. That fifty year period of American music is my favorite: Bluegrass, Old Time, Blues, Hokum, Rags, Swing, Hillbilly, Country, & Rockabilly. That's for me!

A rich sound, then a delicate sound, then a fun sound, then a mellow sound, then a very deep sound, then a mountain sound, then a happy sound. My goodness, Tom, you're a prolific picker! It'll be another BHO classic.

Very well done, a delightful musical smorgasborg that really showcases your unique versatility. I like the 1920s Mississippi jug band sound that you get with that mix of banjos and banjo technique.
