I hadn't played my old Pollman fretless for a while and it's been sitting on my wall cracking at me as the humidity changes and the skin head adjusts. I recorded a fiddle track of "Mike in the Wilderness" to demonstrate one of my for-sale banjos and then noodled with the Pollman. It's funny how some banjos ask to be played in specific ways. The Pollman has a pretty wide neck and fairly high action (3/8" at the heel), which reduces sustain and chops off notes. This banjo likes to play spare counterpoint, and for some reason I feel freer to bend notes.
