Played on a 12-inch open back, made from hollow-core door veneer. Remo permatension head (No brackets!) The style is sort of Scruggs rolls, bare fingers, with the occasional down stroke whenever I felt like it.

Good old "Cripple Creek". Since the frets are just deep scratches in the Fomica (TM) fingerboard, I was trying for as many slides as I could squeeze in.

This is the old beater banjo that I put a new head and tuners on. After I get the sound here, I'll post a link to the pictures.

Wrote this when I was really frustrated by all the stuff going on at once. Job dissatisfaction, financial woes, and my son being psychologically abused by his stepfather.

This is the MP3 of a songbeing played in 3 styles, on a banjo shown HERE http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/280526 I made it from a Latinfn Percussion(TM) RythMix hand drum, a used electrical guitar neck, and a salad bowl. I try a little Seeger style, then Scuggs, then what passes for Clawhammer when I'm at home and nobody's around.

Played on the resophonic instrument I made. It's not a DOBRO,which is a trademarked name. And it's designed to LOOK like a coffin. So I call it "Dead As A DODO", with an added small r, to make the word LOOK a bit like "DOBRO". Just my way of having fun.

Actually an anti-driving drunk song. As I passed from one room to another, the radio was playing the tune that I used for the chorus. I had no idea what the lyrics were, but the tune caught me, and I was singing along to it, making up my own words. About two hours later, the whole song had been cobbled together. If you like, I can e-mail you the chords and lyrics.

This is the hybrid electric/acoustic banjo I made, played pirectly into a small Marshall amp, with the "Line Out" into a batery-powered radio shack mixer, and from there into my computer mic jack. This way, you'll hear the MAGNETIC pickup on the first go-through, and the built-in microphone on the second.

Took me 5 hours to quickly and cheaply cobble together this banjo. http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/300085/2/#3798555 Fishing line for strings, eyebolts for tuning pegs, plastic soft drink bottle tacked and heat-shrunk for a head. Tried a bit of strumming, a bit of Seeger style, and some simple Bluegrass rolls.

Ken asked if anybody knew the lyrics to FMB, so I made some up. Don't like 'em? Make up your own! That's how Woody Guthrie made his money.
