A happy and a sad evening

Posted by Lorix on Monday, August 16, 2010

Hey Banjo-guys and girls.

  It has been a happy and a sad evening. first the happy thing. Tobias ( Denmark ) is af good friend of mine and I've have just finishing modyfieng his Goodtime-banjo to a Roundpeak-banjo. The fingerboard SHOULD be POLISHED but apart from that I'm  so happy about helping him to get an instrument that he wanted for a long time. Apart from his joy I have gained pracis experience and knowhow. From now on I'll be happy every time I hear him play an instrument I helped to create :-).

The sad thing is that I just got an email about that http://europeanoldtimers.ning.com/ will close at the end of the month. I don't use "european oldtimers" much but I have arranged 3 bigger jams in the past 6 month througt this forum. Apart from "Kattinge" there are too few big jams in Denmark. With the loss of european oldtimers we lose a great toolm to arrange more jams :-( .

There should be "GENRE-hangouts" as well as "instrument-hangouts" such as "Oldtime-hangout" "Bluegrass-hangout"              "Rock-hangout" "Jazz-hangout" Reggae-hangout and "Death Metal-Hangout". Forums where people playing different instruments but the same genre can make contact and blay together.

  Banjo-Hangout is one of the most importent things in my learning. I got inspiration advise and contact to some local musicians. All very valueble. Thanks to all members who are keeping the good Hangout-spirit high :-)

Hey Peter... A fellow banjo lover, also from CPH. I checked you videos on youtube, and I really like your clawhammer banjoing. I play the Scruggs three finger style. :-) Writing in english because I'm not sure if I'm allowed to write in danish. Hahaha, :-)
