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. Took up the Viola back in 2016, actively playing in local amateur string orchestra. Have lots of 1880-1920's Banjo sheet music to choose from (about 2k pieces) and am actively tabbing them out (using Musescore). Member of ABF (American Banjo Fraternity) and currently hang out on https://classic-banjo.ning.com, http://minstrelbanjo.ning.com, TDPRI, Strat-Talk and here on the Hangout.
