Due to a shoulder problem I can not play my regular sized banjos as much as I would like too. Playing banjo, regardless of how bad at it I am, makes me happy. Not being able to play makes me sadder. So I ordered a nice new Deering Parlor banjo today.
I'm thinking the shorter scale will make it possible for me to play it when playing my regular sized banjos becomes too painful. Additionally, I think it will look real cute next to my Goodtime Americana - a little brother/sister kind of thing. My player has a 12" pot and so does my knock-around. Neither sounded, well, right when capoed to A or C.
While it does not have a 12" pot the Deering Parlor banjo is tuned to open G. I like open G and I won't need to clutter things up with capos when I play it.
It will be roughly six weeks before it arrives.
I'm very excited and looking forward to playing it.

Love you occupation. I am a working BDOG. Good you are adapting to follow your fun. I bet that is one of the most diverse groups Mary has ever been listed with under your Fav Musicians, eh. I am jealous of the amount of old time music and musicians along the front range of Colorado that you folks are grooming. BTW, my marriage did survive my time away in Pueblo back in the 70s. ;-) Brad

From one BDOG to another, thanks for the laugh. Your Chuck Lee banjo is beautiful. I never thought about the diversity of my list of favorite musicians however I hereby publicly admit that the only reason The Partridge Family made the list is because I had a crush on Susan Dey. Mary made the list because when I see her play it is as if she's on fire - lots of passion.
