I agree with you Roly. The banjo's rightful place is at the pinnacle - in other words, out of reach!

Hi Lance

I like the banjo...in the hands of a true exponent of the instrument.Indeed it was this very blog that put me onto the amazing Eddie Peabody and of course there is always the masterful Keith Stephen.
