Yeah, those were the days. I’m up for it if you are.

I am not sure If I am a good candidate for writing long letters, nor do I know If I really like it or not, but I definitely want to give it a shot.

Cheers @Russ - it really was a quick thing intended to raise a few laughs!  I recorded the bass track during a couple of (camera off) Teams calls, and the main video was a one-take rush when I managed to escape work for a lunch break!

@tv101 To go from my weekly Apple/Spotify ‘you had zero listens’ reports to this - my head is still l spinning. 

My work here is done.

Jack of all trades and master of my own destiny. It’s only a small destiny.

Hey Blissers

As Carol is taking a little Bliss-break, SteeveeDee & I just tested out a Jitsi chat room alternative.   No songs etc (at first!), just a virtual pub.  Jitsi is like Zoom (et al) except completely free, no restrictions, no sign-in needed, works on any browser or through its own app on a phone, tablet, laptop, etc.  You just need a mic.  Camera optional if you want to share your face.

 

Thought we’d invite as many of the usual thurs eve Blissers as we can get the message out to, for a session at 8pm next Thursday.  Starting at 8pm, we can move over to Bliss if that goes ahead.

Or download the (free) iOS app.

chatroom name TheBlissers

@tv101

When does it start. Sorry I should have read all,of your post not just the first bit. Multitasking of course, not my strong point.

I’m glad I didn’t distract you from that important task.  The world needs more banjos.

My mission in life is to set all the banjos in the world up correctly so that they sound good and play in tune. Maybe people won’t hate them so much.

@rocknroller912 I wasn't aware that, if they were set up correctly, that would help them sound better. 🙂

@bpower

Yes the head should be tuned to a note believe it or not, usually a G for 5 string and if the bridge and strings are too high then there is too much pressure and the head won’t vibrate. All down pressure and no bounce. A higher head tuning can affect the tone making it more treble I think.

@tv101 take notes in case you ever get a banjo repair to do, and by the way there are no Stanley blades involved in the set up.

Setting up a banjo is very similar to setting up a guitar.

But there's one key difference.

With a guitar, you'll often throw the old strings away, and put a new set once you've finished all the tweaking.

With a banjo, once you've thrown the old strings away, you're good to go.

🤣
