It's always a great treat to hear Brad.

That's the guy who made my beautiful art deco banjo I posted about back in March!

(Brad, if you are reading this, thank you! I got it just in time for the pandemic lockdown, and I am just lovin' it although my wife may not be quite such a big fan!)

Just by coincidence, I've been working on that very tune lately, which has been a longtime favourite of mine as well.

But, wow! Now I don't know whether to try to copy Brad's version... or just give up altogether!

OK, well, I just did a quick recording of my own version. It's not nearly as good as Brad's but I would just like him to hear me playing his beautiful Vox Deco banjo.

By the way, if the banjo sounds a little different, it's because I've got it stuffed full of old dry cleaners plastic bags to try and muffle the sound a little so I don't drive my wife crazy when I practise...
