    Re: RIP frailing fingernail

    Yeah, I guess I will just continue the cycle of growing the nail (with the ease of playing and tone improving as it grows), breaking it, and re-growing it. I also tend to use the time between...

    RIP frailing fingernail

    Was out shooting hoops with my kids last night and of course ripped the end of a perfect frailing nail off. I might have to see if I can learn to play with a clipped nail. I do find it annoying to...

  11. Re: Banjo teaching DVD's, whats your favorites (any style)

    I think I would definitely benefit from instructional DVDs. My problem these days is that I no longer have a DVD player! I'll have to see about downloadable versions of some of these.

    Re: Got 9 minutes?

    Got a copy of Banjo Crackerjax 1922-1930 the other day. Popped it in the player in my car on a drive this morning. Just dynamite stuff.
