    The battle of banjo is related to the battle of life. Nice one though it's sad. Thanks for your comment. Loved always, bl

    "I’m a five string banjo frettin’" Sure can relate to this one, my friend! Played banjo as part of a six person folk singing group back in the early 60s. We were called strangely enough, The Canadiana Folksingers, and patterned ourselves after The New Christy Minstrels! Appeared of TV and made a couple of LPs... great memories! Jake

    What an irresistible story; makes me sad for instruments abandoned. So many memories tied up in those years when being played and a banjo is sure a toe tapping sound that seems to have lost it's popularity these days. Perfection reigns in this one!
