Busted head

Tuesday, May 29, 2018

No. Not like when another kid threw a rock at me and opened my head back in '67. No.

My Ome 12" head separated from it's hoop... but It's an Ome - and still playable. But will replace tomorrow - was only 9 1/2 year old head... just a kid with dirty skin. Never had a banjo head pop before.

Artist - Photographer. Lived East Coast- Midwest - West Coast. Began playing banjo in 1973. I play an Ome 12" open back Silverspun tone ring. My favorite Tuning is Double C tuned low to Double A or A#...(or even Double G#.) I like to make recordings of my own compositions these days - using banjo, guitar (They are played as 5 string guitars), bass, and other sounds.
