Some easy chording to show what the vintage Pollmann sounds like. 100 year old banjo with skin head and nylon strings. Recorded outside under tall bricked porch so there are some other noises - echoes and outside insects.

Quick runthrough of this song to let our church music director hear it. Not very polished up. :)

Ragtime Annie played on my 100 year old Pollmann open back banjo. This is a traditional tune that I learned from Mary Z Cox's Florida Banjo tab book. Tuning is ADADE. Been playing for less than 6 months in clawhammer style. Still learning.

Only a few months of actual playing on openback and only a few weeks of learning the right way. Double thumbing this song that Dan Levenson taught me. Be easy, I'm a NEWBIE!

Traditional song learned from MaryZCox's Florida Banjo book. C#AEAB tuning on Goldtone CB-100. It's kind of slow and a rough spot but it's definitely progress. I love the tuning of this song because it makes all my strings ring when being played. Only been playing still for a few months.

Wildwood Flower in G. First crack at overdubbing. Open Back banjo with nylon strings, bari uke, shaker, and then some. Enjoy.
