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

Comment by Dave Lynas on Tuesday

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 Tuesday

Yup, on what Ambrose said too.

Comment by Uncle John on Tuesday

Beautiful, fret board, Ludwig.  Very nice banjer.

Comment by Bob "Ambrose" Negus on Tuesday

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  :-)

Comment by Dave Lynas on Monday

Thanks Daniel. It’s room for something. I’ll live with this till the muse kicks my butt.
