Posted by erikforgod on Friday, August 5, 2011

I heard from mom on the phone...she spoke to my grandma recently: "My granny up in Kentucky" said this about when I was at her house last Month and showing off my new Crow banjo:



"I din thank i´d lak that lil banjer mor´nat manlin, but I Lak at´banjer mor´ nat manlin he uzed ta pick...I buleev it sounds purtier...I juz buleev I lak wat hes doin betur´n nat lil banjer...I shore hop he stays wuth it!"

( Translation of a standard western Kentucky draw )

I love my granny...shes the best!!! and I miss her...and my pawpaw like nothin else!!


She and my grandad always enjoyed my music and always supported me in everything I did!

Yeah Eric, Grams are like that usually! I'm glad she got to hear you play on it when you first got it.

Yes my grams is one of the best....shes got that thick Ky accent.I used to pick the guitar and mandolin for them on the porch when I was visiting...she would just pull up a chair and just listen...look off in the distance...not say a word and just smile. She is the best audience anybody can ever want...and she loves music. She was quite the "back-stepper" dancer back in her day too. But these days she just older and much sweeter now...kinda liked aged pure wine....just keeps gettin better n better.

My Granma picked a banjo till WWII took her her oldest son...she laid it down and got rid of it. Her way of grievin' I guess. When I got my first banjo, she taught me Cripple Creek in her old 2-finger style...did yhe best she could with arthritic fingers and having not picked up a banjer in over 30 years...Yep, Grandmas are great!!
