A few months back on a forum topic, Will, Craig, and others talked about Eddie Lang's beaut guitar work on many of Bix's early recordings ...... that was my first introduction to S T Bl's., and I loved it!.

So thanks gentlemen, for getting this show started!. Here's the link, enjoy Don. ........ youtu.be/KWOUlVe0dhY

Hey Marco, Bill, Will, Mike, Paul, Paolo, Craig, thanks gentlemen!. heart

Paul and Paolo, re the Vox ...... it's a Vox1, 1958 and was lent to me by my mate Garry, to play on this clip. It's a great banjo, with a beaut response, and easy action.

Craig, you know I did'nt even realize I was playing left handed until you mentioned it, bugger, that Samsung phone must have  thrown a wobbly!. ..... Don.

Paolo, I hope you do own a Vox1 one day, thanks for your comment Craig, it's appreciated.

Here's the sheet music in case you need it ....... ''The Frankie "Tram" Trumbauer Orchestra'' used these chords in the two highlighted bars ...... F . . . /F#dim. . ./ in their recording. Good luck, Don.
