Gitjo results...

Posted by RevSteve58 on Tuesday, November 11, 2008

I recently won the October drawing for the Lame Horse Gitjo on BHO. I posted a question as to whether there was really any place in bluegrass gospel music for a 6-string banjo and, for the most part, I got responses that told me that while it would work well for old-time music, it probably wouldn't do much for bluegrass.   

After some experimentation I have reached the conclusion that it will work in bluegrass and I'm going to try to prove it. I've restrung it with extra-light strings and set it up in Nashville high tuning. This thing has really come to life!!! 

I can't wait for my wife and I to begin recording our next CD project. I'll probably use the Gitjo on nearly every song.

God bless Lame Horse and BHO!

I remember when Sonny Osborne played a six string banjo.

Sorry for poor spelling, I try.
