I have posted before looking for a picture of Earl Scruggs 1945 home made banjo capo(pre-Scruggs-Ruben) off the banjo. For anyone interested I found it. Banjo player Larry Perkins has it in his collection of Earl Scruggs' banjo parts. Log on to FB page Arkansas Red and you will see it along with tuner buttons, a tailpiece, bracket wrench, and other things.

I can't find your page on FB, Red!
What else can I search?

Can't get a readable image of the yellow note.
Is it something I should know??

I have moved this topic from Bluegrass Playing advice to other banjo related as it as nothing to do with playing advice.

I tried to get a better picture so I could read the yellow note, but no luck. I enlarged the picture, but the image became blurred. I FB'd Larry to see if he would send me what it said, but so far no reply. I understand he's had some health problems, so perhaps I'll get an answer and perhaps not.
