Here it is with the lovely chords -- how many of you know them? REMEMBER, the BANJO is a MUSICAL INSTRUMENT. Now let's all play this lovely tune.

Hi Tom, I enjoy hearing from you. It's all with the Thumb. Playing with other musicians I use a pick, but just by myself I've always used my thumb. Use to play an Electric Bass with my Thumb and Pick with the "Big Tiny Little Show" (from Lawrence Welk) Tiny liked the pick. I always play the Up-right Bass with my Finger.
I feel that with my thumb It's more personal. Eddy (A Minstrel)
