New banjo

Monday, June 8, 2015

Recently bought a new Goldstar Rover FB111 from Ross Nickerson and am loving it. Now, if I could just learn to play it! Having great fun with it but haven't had time to practice much beyond CC, Wildwood flower, Jesse James, etc. but I'm improving and listening to all the Dave Hum on UTube. Scruggs is great but Hum is so much better (for my eclectic tastes anyway).
