Time flies

Posted on October 3, 2018 at 20:49 0 Comments

Five years since I posted in this blog. So much has changed.  First on all the Copeland has gone and have since owned a Goodtime, a Barnes & Mullins and finally a Deering Eagle II, which is my only banjo now.  I have progressed enough now to be playing in a 15 piece Folk Ensemble/ceilidh band. and a duo known as Barnsdale Hood.  Also on the 2nd Sunday afternoon of each month I run a tune session in Barnsley.

Having played the fiddle and mandolin for nearly twenty years I have never been satisfied with the volume of the mandolin and my intonation on the fiddle especially in the faster tunes leaves a bit to be desired, I thought I would have a go with a new instrument.

I am now awaiting delivery of a Copeland 19 fret Irish tenor banjo from a Shop in Dublin. Any tips on playing and/or setting up would be much appreciated.

I will report how I am getting on with it as progress is made…

Hi Alan,

Nice to hear from you mate, but sorry, no, I will not be venturing out tomorrow. I've just got back from holiday and have a list of stuff as long as your arm to catch up with.
