Twanger Time!

Here is one of a few I’d like to do. Hopefully get more up in the next few days. Still trying to commit this one to memory so it’s a little rough in places. I really have fun playing this one. And in honor of the new Twanger I gave y’all not one but two smiles :grin: Let me know what y’all think. Hopefully I sound better. Thanks in advance!

That tone is soooo good. I’ve never played another banjo at 3 times the price that sounded as good as a Twanger. Hope you enjoy it!

Wish I’d known you might record this…I’d have asked you to collaborate & we could’ve had a whole band!

jpg Emilie. That Twanger fairly twang’s. You played it well and very cleanly and you even gave us a hint of a smile. Look forward to hearing more. Maybe see those smiling eyes next time ?

Santa asked the little boy what he wanted for Christmas. The little boy sheepishly replied “a Twanger”. Santa looked over at the boys mother with a confused look. The mother shrugged her shoulders. So Santa asked the little boy “what do you do with a Twanger”? The little boy replied “you pick it with your tumb and two fwangers “.

@Lone_Wolf that’s a fine sounding banjo. I hope you enjoy yours as much as I enjoy mine.

You’ve done very well to get that far on such a newly released lesson. I’ll bet that you can coax many different voices out of that beast of a banjo and they would all be great. Have you experimented much with picking as lightly as you can and creeping maybe an inch further from the bridge yet?
To me this tune begs for ‘less is more’ approach. Would love to hear this banjo on some backup picked way up near the neck with your right hand.
