stigwyrd Another banjo I just finished making. 12" pot. 24&1/2" scale length. 1/4" Rolled brass tone ring raised on brads over scalloped Keller drumshell rim. American Black Walnut and British Cherry neck with carbon fibre stiffener inside. First neck I've ever made entirely from scratch. Finished with pure beeswax, heat-impregnated into the wood. Also features my first ever handmade, silver-soldered brass tension hoop. #banjo #oldtime #handmade #lutherie #frailing #openbackbanjo #clawhammerbanjo #clawhammer #handmadeinstruments 4d

d.cassells Poor Ellen Smith and how she was found
Shot through the heart, lying cold on the ground.

Tommy Jarrells Poor Ellen Smith off of his banjo solos album "Come and Go With Me. gDGBD. Now that I listened to it maybe I should've played it faster
I need to get a fretless, I swear these frets are just in the way.

  •   resg76 Been playing this just tonight ! I think I like Pete steeles version the best however 4d
  •   d.cassells Yeah Pete Steeles version is great. I need to get better at 2 or 3 finger though to play it. I think his is in one of those styles. I could be wrong though. 4d
  •   resg76 @d.cassells yeah it's definitely picked; I like his vocal melody though; hangs onto the the second word in the verse a little longer 3d

caposmusic 11" or 12", wood ring or brass rings, maple or walnut, fiberskin or renaissance head, sweetone or no-knot... I believe we just about have it with our OME Banjos heading to Clifftop, WV. #omebanjos #ome #clifftop #dropthumb #dropthumbsnotbombs #clawhammer #openback #frailing #colorado #madeinamerica 1w

d.cassells Messing around with Little Birdie eCGAD. Took bits and pieces from Coon Creek Girls, Pete Steele, Morgan Sexton, Lee Sexton and who knows who else. Whatever was in my head If my skills at up picking or whatever you wanna call it were better I would've played the whole song that way. I think the up picking is what gives little birdie that feeling. #banjo #clawhammerbanjo #frailing #uppicking #littlebirdie #5stringbanjo #oldtimebanjo #oldtimemusic #georgebanjos #little #bird #ecgad 1w

nicedecnals Little spotted pony on the @brncrvr kit banjo! Go buy one! They're cheap and easy to put together. Apologies for the tuning, strings are still stretching. #banjo#fretless#fretlessbanjo#frailing#clawhammer#dropthumb#briancarver#carverbanjo#mountainbanjo#diy#banjokit#tackhead 2w

nicedecnals Finally finished my Carver Banjo kit from @brncrvr! Added an arm bevel on the pot and finished it in a hard brass instrument lacquer. Fun little thing. Going to throw a bone nut and thick strings on it soon. Watch for a video :) #banjo#fretless#fretlessbanjo#clawhammer#dropthumb#frailing#tackhead#minstrel#carverbanjo#banjokit#diy 2w
