Big into Classic style these days, nylon strings, cool 1880's music, antique banjos. Interested in most anything banjo though, play a variety of styles including Classic, Stroke-Style (Minstrel), Scruggs, Melodic, Clawhammer, Irish Tenor, etc. Can find my way around a Guitar, Mandolin, Bass and occasionally Anglo Concertina. Have lots of 1880-1920's Banjo sheet music to choose from (about 2k pieces) and am actively TABbing them out (using TablEdit). Member of ABF (American Banjo Fraternity), FIGA (Fretted Instrument Guild of America) and currenly hang out on the Classicbanjo mailing list (, Ning Classic Banjo, Ning Minstrel Banjo and here on the Hangout.
