Hey, Matt.  Back for another listen and a message to you.   Do you have that ten you owe me?   Naw, 

I liked that banjer so much I looked for a round tin in my shed and none were to be found.  So I used a vintage cigar box and tooth picks (as you did).  Modern round tooth picks did not work well for me.  I got some old timey flat tooth picks  from a friend and they worked great.  I hope to string it up Wednesday or Thursday.  Also, may try 'Rhody' next time we play at a nursing home, which will be the 26th.

You are making that Chugger Banjo sing Matthew! Nice upbeat song! Great job.

I love this sad old song the way you do it.  Fantastic.  That 2 string diatoninc tinjo sure works great.

Wow. That was fantastic Matthew. It reminded me of old Bob Dylan albums. That banjo seems to like the open air.
