Some funny stuff in here.

 

Well, for some reason the link didn't post. I'll try to do it over.

Here’s one from last week that killed me,,,lol

“Drew wanted to know if I ever learned to play clawhammer style banjo. No, I did not. My Dad played pretty good, but I just couldn’t get it…One night at the Opry I asked Grandpa Jones to show me how…we got in a dressing room back there at the Ryman…he with his banjo, me with mine. He told me exactly how it was done. I tried my best to get that rhythm going but I just couldn’t do it. Paw had a pretty good temper…he found it whilst sitting there. He looked up at me right wild eyed and said, “A man that can do what you do with your fingers and can’t do this!” He jumped up and stormed out of the room. He didn’t speak to me for a solid year after that. I didn’t ask him anything else about clawhammer either.”

We're banjo players!

Give us enough rope, and we'll start our own bight.

I don't think that is "a pretty good temper"... It might be mental illness.

I find his writing style to be a little bit peculiar, but I love his candor.

He writes just like someone who dropped out of school at 14 to become a pro musician. I love reading his posts.
