 This is an original piece I cobbled together from riffs I'd been playing and a portion of the fiddle tune "Spotted Pony" The Shmoo part comes in from those creatures in L'il Abner. The song is played on a Wildwood Troubadour tuned to F#DADE.

 I bought a concert scale ukulele a little less than a month ago to try to teach myself to play it. I love it - oure and simple. Anyway, this song fell out of it. I call it Sally's in the Kitchen because I actually have two whole verses of lyrics for it and a break. Once I get that last verse and learn how to sing and play at the same time - maybe I'll record a full take. Meanwhile...

 My first banjo was a Goodtime. Then, a couple of months after that - before I started learning clawhammer style, I saw an old Dobson for sale on Ebay and bought it - fixed it up and started playing it. I made this song up and recorded it on my pc just for giggles really. It's dirt simple but I like it, particularly I like the sound that old Dobson made with those nylon strings and that little flurry of notes that happens at 36 and 37 seconds into it. This circa 1890-1900 banjo had violin peg tuners and I can't begin to tell you what notes it's tuned to - I used to tune it to wherever it sounded best. You'll probably have to turn your speakers up to hear it - my apologies, it was recorded with the microphone from my wife's telephone headset.

 I played this on my circa 1895 Bruno "Manhattan 3" banjo. Equipped with a Morrison tone ring and a calfskin head, I love the sound this banjo produces.

 This is what came out of my new Flesher "Mountain Boomer" a fretless banjo with a wicked huge 14" rim. Some background noises of my wife doing dishes in the other room...and I think I say "Phew" at the end..
