Alan Jones's Blog (2)

Time flies

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…
