Hi Flatfoot Johnny,

I was wondering if you know how to play "Cornbread and Butter Beans" (as made famous by the Carolina Chocolate Drops), as it is a claw-hammer banjo tune and I vaguely recall seeing a video of it with your name on it on Youtube. If you have the tabs worked out (even just the melody), I'd greatly appreciate a copy. Cooler still would be a slow (easy to learn from video, if you have the time). Thanks.

Same to you! I really like your builds. I'm just starting but I hope to get to that level one day. They're works of art!

Hello  - it's good to hear from you.

I'm having fun with my CBG  - it's a great sound with stunning good looks!

Hi Johnny.

Thanks very much for leaving a comment on my video and for the friend request. While I think of it, may I invite you to join the London and nearby group. The idea is to compare notes on sources of materials as well as maybe arranging sharing lifts to events further north.

Thanks again.

Johnny -- My tackhead's holding up pretty well; neck's very straight, and the violin-style friction tuners work fine (well, as friction tuners go)... Humidity does indeed have a significant effect on the skin head, which is why I'd like to try a skin head w/ tension hoop and brackets like your grain measure banjo. When I get to it, I may have questions fer ya'...  Wish I had clawhammer skills like you!


Shoot me an e-mail at tktreadway@aol.com with an address, and I'll send you a copy of my little homebrew cd, free of charge.

Love your full of good art instruments and photos.  The syrup banjo is my fave.  Did you see my comment regarding you in Chickenbone's 6 string video?
