I did about everything on the 5string, starting with bluegrass, then dutch folktunes, after that I had a jazzgroup with sax and vibraphone. Now I play bluegrass banjo with the Margry & Van Asten Band and also bossa nova and jazz with my band Stripe Azz. "The shadow of your smile" was really made for the banjo. In october 2006 I bought a Nechville Phantom with Galaxy neck at the Turtle Hill Co in Maryland. I, and with me my fellow bandmembers like it far more than the Mastertone. Looks terriffic, sound terriffic, original in every way. Really the start of a new banjo-era! In 2009 Tom Nechville made me a slimmer neck in cocobolo/galaxy, beautiful. Tom delivered it right at my door in the Netherlands, and visits me every year since,and then we have some sessions and performances.
