Monday, April 8, 2019

I signed in today to retrieve some pictures from my pages here and realized I never gave a proper goodbye to my many friends here. I decided many months ago that my time on the BHO had run out, so to speak. There was no animosity towards the site or any particular participants  involved in my decision to leave. The site has been very good to me and I appreciate folks here who I became a real friend with.

Thanks to Eric for creating it and everyone I learned things from and hopefully my contributions here were helpful to folks in some small way. If I ever offended anyone in various threads, I apologize as that was never an intention. 

But all good things come to an end, as the old saying goes and for me it felt like time to move on. I won't elaborate on specific reasons why since they won't edify or make anything "better". You can find me onine with my LOTW Facebook group, and I hope to occasionally post a LOTW video from time to time. My repair and set up business is thriving and I play lots of gigs on the side so life is great and that's my main focus these days and not Internet forums. 

Thanks again and happy trails to you and yours BHO! Over and out, from me. Chiao!

I will have been playing banjo for 40 years as of December 2014..gulp, and performing professionally for over 25 years now. I also have over 25 years as a session player and teacher. My band experience covers over (gulp) 50 groups, more than likely. Some of the bands Ive played with include Wyatt Rice and Santa Cruz, Johnny and Jeanette Williams Band, Arnie Solomon Band,The Shady Grove Band,Allegheny Moon, NOTA, Chuck and the Waggin Ears, Rain Check and too many others to name. I also play resonator guitar, transitioning with many bands as a resophonic player, and or banjoist. My musical 'schooling' was playing for Friday and Saturday night dances, playing and jamming at fiddlers conventions, jamming at Festivals, local jam sessions and eventually playing in semi-pro bands and then full time touring. My touring experience covers the North American continent and Europe, playing all major festivals and venues. Im guessing my total gig total is over 5000 at this point. Whew, I am glad to get all that stuff out of the This part of the State of North Carolina is 'ground zero' for great music and musicians and I have been blessed to to have been born and raised here. Im also an avid 'contributor' ...that sounds self promoting...I prefer avid 'poster', on the Banjo Hangout. I enjoy helping up and coming pickers, learning new things from others here, listening to the great music being posted here, collaborating with my musical cohorts here, and just being in the midst of such a great banjo website! I try to give back when I can and my "lick Of The Week" video lessons here on the site is one small way to do that I hope. I'm also a long time Luthier/repairman and occasional instrument builder. My dad, Wallace Boulding, was a life long luthier and passed the trade on to me. The name of my shop is "NoteAble Repair and is located in beautiful Mount Airy NC. Most of all, I want to thank God for what talents I have and thanks to Earl Scruggs too. He IS the banjo man. All bluegrass banjoists owe Earl a huge debt of gratitude for his genius and his music. Thanks Earl !
