Dave Frey: Play it Like Perry

Just a few days ago I received my new copy of "Play it Like Perry"...i.e. Perry Bechtel from Dave Frey... This is a superb tenor banjo book with music, copies of Perry's original music sheets, chord diagrams and history on each tune. It is great paper and spiral bound. I don't think I've ever seen a music folio nearly this well done in my decades of playing tenor banjo.. There are numerous tunes...some are fairly straight forward and some are challenging even for a slightly advanced student. I highly recommend it and one can check it out, along with other books from Dave at

Mutes: Mike's Banjo Mute

Submitted by Dogface on 4/7/2009

Where Purchased: From Mike

Overall Comments

I just ordered and received one of Mike's Mutes. I am a tenor player and occasionally want to play a slow song muted and mutes are, of course, good for practice sessions. Mine fit perfectly on a Grover bridge, was easy to tighten down and muted the tones very nicely. No buzzing or tinny sound. Very well made and comes in a nice draw string bag so that it won't rattle around in the case compartment. Thanks Mike...really nice product.
