Here is a rough draft for the cover of the new book. As the information on the cover suggests, there is a lot going on here in Crisfield. Dear Old Dad is doing the final edit and I am setting up the new website. It has been a lot of work, but I am loving every minute of it.
I am really excited about this.
I will be posting more details soon. We will begin taking pre-orders in about two or three weeks.

Had to share this, because why not.
I was playing tonight and broke my second string, so I decided to try a song one string short. This is the result.
I’m tempted to try more songs like this.
This week we take a look at the drive-in favorite Equinox, jam a bit on our banjos, share yet another recipe of the stars and play our usual blend of great music.
On a sad note, I said in the show that I thought Link Wray might still be kicking around. Sadly, he passed away back in 2005. He will be missed.

Thanks for all you do. I gave up on guitar a few years ago because I didn’t understand what I was playing and became tab dependent. After a few months of your banjo lessons, I can pick up on chord progression and melody by ear. I figured I needed to finally send you a sound file to say thanks. And yes I sing even if I don’t make the banjo sound any better.
On a separate note, I’m in Brazil. This is virgin country for banjo it seems. People don’t know what make of it but love to jam along on the guitar. Se cuida!
