Like a sweet little banjo. Like butterscotch pudding tastes. Hard to use words-on-a-screen to describe notes-in-an-ear.

I'll try learn how to post audio files. Until then, according to your photo, you have a horse. So at least you don't have to WALK all the way here, to give it a listen!

Sweet looking Banjo

It's a tambourine with an adjustable head; came that way from the store. I just took off the jingle discs.

Gee Mike, how do you expect it to be taken seriously if it doesn't have 76 brackets on it?

If it was HARD work, I would not DO it.
If I wanted a HARD job of work, I'd get my name legally changed to
