Yeah pick you'd get the same crowd response as Bob Dylan playing a Strat onstage at Newport. That Strat went for over a million bucks a while back! That Dano banjo/git is a new one on me but long ago I had a Dano "Bellzouki" that I foolishly sold to help feed my family. I never could prioritize!

Yeah pick, who needs these labels! All things are possible. Like heavy metal on a banjo:

Yup Wes, 100 years from now some of the things we make on CBN might survive and be worth a ton of money.

Yup pick, I've done interviews before and sometimes you gotta kick yourself for the dumb comments or questions. I would have got a big kick if she had looked at him and said "no, mostly classical music like Mozart"
