Fretless cookie tin, fishline strings. First time through is Seeger style, second time, Scruggs more or LESS! Not that easy for me, to do BG rolls on a fretless, but, hey, why not give 'er a try? Posted in response to somebody who had apparently never heard a cookie-tin banjo. Culturally deprived? Not on MY watch!

Well, very little of this is " Ballad of Jed Clampett", just enough to demonstrate how THIS banjo sounds.

My brother Gregory Gregory ( the kid so nice, Mom named him twice) wrote this. He has given permission to sing it wherever you are, and wherever you go. Hope the audio is clear, as to the words. If not, email me and I'll send you a copy. No tab, but chords, too, if you need them.

Wrote this simple waltz a few years back. Since "666;" is written about as a significant number in various sermons and horror movies and such as the Devil's number, I figured that the dark cold hour of 3:33 would be a fine time to set a scene for a conversation, real or imagined, between a bitter drunk and the Devil. Had a bit of trouble getting the song INTO the computer. (The original was lost in a previous crash, but my nephew had a copy, but not in a format BHO would accept. So it went from that format, to a disc, and was played out of one computer, through speakers, into a microphone, down a wire to an amplifier, out that into another a microphone, and into a second computer, to make an MP3 file.)

Just a sample of what a single-string instrument, made from scraps, can sound like. Timmy turned 2 in 2010, a bit young for all 5 strings at once. See my Squared Eel photo album for pictures. [img]http://www.hangoutstorage.com/banjohangout.org/storage/photos/medium/8805-115257592010.jpg[/img]

Converted FIRST ACT solid body guitar to a C-scale banjo. Look for "WORST ACT TRAVEL BANJO" for pictures and discussion.

In the world of FANTASY, step-fathers live up to their own expectations of how NICE they'll be. This song was written by a stepfather, for other stepfathers.

I wrote this song abput a half century ago. Dod not HAVE a girlfriend at the time, but was wondering: "What HAPPENS at the end of a summertime romance?" So I wrote the song, basically forgot about it, until the end of summer 2014, when I mentioned it to my CURRENT Lady Love, who suggested I add it to my "active" list. I wrote it on guitar, so I recorded it on guitar. Feel free to work it up on banjo, mandolin, whatever.

Modified an ALREADY ruined guitar into a dulcimer-fretted instrument, much like a "Strumstick". The first few strums are "test swings". The tune starts about 15 seconds in.
