Hello Howard. This is the space where you can ask questions for all to see and answer.
You can also tell a story or give a view on something you've used, brought, tested, experianced, etc.
As far as how fast to play a blog, you play as fast as you can then double it. LOL.

Now that I have this blog deal in wraps, I can move on to something serious and there is truth in the rumour that I may be more crotchety that mainejohn, you look pretty relaxed picking that 5 string, I would have my tongue out of either side of my mouth while I focus all my brain power on a triksy tune. Just to confuse matters I have replaced my original photo with an updated photo of a younger banjo player who looked remarkably like me? circa 1992. The banjo is a Washburn B16 with a Sullivan tone ring, my first real banjo along with my banjo tie pin, not certain what make the tie pin was but it looked like a 5 string so I had to wear it. So now I am blogging along fine , thanks to all you kind folk, all three of you, you can wake up now, that I remembered to reply. Great outfit bsa, where can I get it ? So a blog is a son of a bitch afterall ? Howard

OK, here is the latest on this crotchety old SOB banjo player,? now he has his new baby banjo expect high speed, high pitched, loud noises to be wrapping around the globe?? I will get the blame for all manner of disasters, natural or otherwise? Seriously, the Ausgrass banjo is seriously well made and seriously GOOD. Made to order by Alan Funk of White Swallow Banjos in South Australia and worked over by yours truly "master fixer of all things??". It needed a few major make overs, like a light weight bridge, re-tensioning of the skin and string changes to stop the cut fingers and associated bleeding caused by the short tight strings. BUT the sound is fantastic, I can capo to A, B and C change tuning to D, so what else do I need. It sure turns heads in a jam session and does not weight 13 ton like the battleship Stelling, so guess what banjo I cart around most of the time, nowadays. That's right, the Stelling when I am in a golf buggy, and the White Swallow when I am on foot. For all you pickers in the Land of OZ, check the banjo out at Beechworth and Harrietville. See yah all there.??
