Just wanted to say Hey!
My biggest regret in life so far is I never learned to play an instrument for at least my own personal pleasure. I haven't croaked just yet so, here we go. I bought my first banjo this week after a fair amount of online and music store research. It is a Gold Tone CC 12" Bob Carlin open back, it's so darn pretty I'm afraid to pick it up (just kidding) but it is beautiful. Took a wonderful ride through southern Indiana to pick it up from a posting I saw here in the BH marketplace. Nice young man who builds top notch mandolins gave me a fair price and much hospitality.
Anyway, if anyone lives near the Mountain Parkway and wants to shoot the breeze, let me know. I do not yet paly, I am a beginning beginer.
