Dave, thanks for your nice words. It's does have a nice sound, but acoustically you have to ride it kind of hard. It must be his best model indeed, if I snuck past scrutiny on that play. I just play dining tables for spare change, so it increased tips by 32%. Like the Parden my assbox, I'll probably steal that!

I love my Uncle John Ratty three string. It has a great sound! Nice play Richard. I think your UJ is his Stratawarius model. The Parden me Ass box.

Jim, it'll be fun! Unc got me cleaning the septic, so he'll have a sparkling clean latrine system again. I'll need you to hold the ladder when I adjust his dish on the roof although I'm a bit confused why the dinner plate on the roof. Tornado finder maybe.

Jim, we will bend over backwards to help you and we know your wife was unhappy that you hocked her washer and dryer to buy that banjo.  You are down to owing us just under $40.00.   Come in Saturday if it's not raining or early next week,--   do some mowing and window washing, clean the latrine and maybe play a little music --  and take that washer and dryer home!

Mr. Jim thank you! Just between you and me, Unc naps between noon and one, just saying! Did notice the pawn shop is guarded like Fort Knox. Good luck on that.

Probation is ok, ankle bracelet and chain allow me on the patio to get to see the sky and enjoy a little sun! I'll pay my debt off with yard chores and hard labor Uncle. Thank you for your generosity and kind words. I was struggling for about four hours trying chord and notes, that will come in time. Then I just pretended it was a banjo, something I must have played in a previous time. The flowers I took from my neighbor.....I guess I have a problem! Fretless was strange, just focused on the dots....story of my life. People, keep your doors locked!

Cool! Unc needs to be generous and let me get my stuff outa hock from his pawn shop.

Pretty nice deck area and flowers too.   Thanks again for all the work you put into that.

All charges have been dropped.   You can 'lift' some more gits if you make such nice vids.  Thanks!   Peoples, he is doing this unplugged on a FRETLESS!

Thanks Anonymous! Notice I played the safe zone at the base of the neck. Similar to guitar. Trouble followed as I move up the neck. So much to learn....so little time.........wife Ha!
