Woody's "Hear Me Talkin' To You" on a Monday Night at the Cafe Carlyle in Manhattan. Reminds me of the old days back in Chicago. I loved those "Chicago Days".
Jerry Zigmont - Trombone. Simon Wettenhall - Trumpet. Conal Fowkes - Piano. John Gill - Drums. Debbie Kennedy - Bass and yours truly on my old OME Merrywang. WHAT A LIFE! "A Minstrel".

Hey, that's not my Ome -- It's last week 5/20/19 AND that's my NEW FOUND Gibson Trap Door with a 12" head and a 15 fret neck. I like the sound! Eddy Ray Davis

Eddy, your "trapdoor" sounds very good. I also own a trapdoor, but it's a basic model with no tone ring and no set up by the holy hands of Vinnie. I hope you will play this instrument during your italian tour!

Great stuff, Eddy! I know that feeling – makes me wish I was sitting in.

Eddy, You have gone from 19 fret/11inch head to 17/fret/12inch head and now a 15 fret/12inch head. If you keep going this way you will soon be playing a fretless/neckless/24inch head. Why don’t you and I make a trade? I’ll take one of your older OME tenor banjos with the plexiglass resonator that you no longer want “stretch out” on and give you a 30 inch head bass drum with a set of ukulele strings taped to the inside with a strap for marching up and down 56th when the spirit moves you.  I’ll even throw in $100.00 Cdn. Funds. That’s almost $70.00 US. And as a bonus because you’re my friend, I’ll even throw in a framed black and white glossy of Art Linkletter hitting a kid! Deal? What say you? I know Mike Vignola would think this a win-win for both of us.



Too bad we’ll miss each other by a week in Barcelona next month.



Hugs to Ruthie and cheers,



Meestro
