For years, "Rudy" as he's known on Banjo Hangout (BHO), has been supplying banjo builders of all ages and abilities with sage advice and documentation on just how to go about building a proper 'jo. It was great to finally meet the man behind the mystique.
Randy Cordle is quiet, unassuming and quick with a smile. He's also an innovative engineer at heart. You can see his "problem solving" approach in just about everything he does. And this interview is a perfect example.
Thanks to BHO (and the WWW), Randy has probably positively affected more banjo building than any one else this century. Thanks Randy!
