A cigar box banjo and the roar of cicadas

Just me, a cigar box banjo and a few bazillion cicadas. It's been a while since I've posted anything.

Thanks, all!

They're attracted to your playing.   My playing repels them.  Good job Trevor and nice build.

Yup.  I sure like the claw hammer work here and the tone. 

My wife was talking about the cicadas singing tonight.  Sadly, I can not hear them.

Thanks! I've only been making noise on the thing for a little over a year, so my playing is always a little suspect to me and hard to gauge. :)

Really nice clawhammer technique. We've got them noisy suckers down here in TX too.
