Thanks AGP. Didn’t know the guy. Just his name seemed to fit .:D).....

Thanks Uncle John. I used Ludwig again tonight to play our new song. I used your lyrics mostly to try a colaborNation. I think it has potential.

Louis Burton Lindley Jr - AKA Slim Pickens (according to Mr Google)  :-D

Yup James. Old tambourines are great converts to banjoism. This convert is very light and comfortable to play. AGP. Who? Gotta Google Louis. Thanks Uncle, thanks Ambrose.

I've got an old tambourine that never gets used for anything.  Pretty tempted to try this. =)

Comment by Uncle John on April 16, 2019 at 6:51am

Yup, on what Ambrose said too.

Comment by Uncle John on April 16, 2019 at 6:51am

Beautiful, fret board, Ludwig.  Very nice banjer.

Comment by Bob "Ambrose" Negus on April 16, 2019 at 6:45am

Love the aesthetics. It looks like a nicely "rounded" and balanced instrument.

"Nice Dave", I'm sure Louis Burton Lindley Jr would have given his approval on this lovely Banjer build  :-)
