After one year, thanks to Frank, I have returned to Piano World. I missed you folks! I sold the Yamaha grand and now have a 4 string banjo. I'm active on Banjo world. My neighbors hate me! Only kidding. Hope you will welcome me back.
Best, Bill

Hey Bill - Welcome Back!

I didn't know where you went and I hoped you didn't use a club and find a spade.

Welcome back, Bill!

Once upon a time, the 4 string banjo was a very popular instrument, not only in folk music, but big-band and orchestra music.

I play the 5-string banjo a little.

Maybe you will get you another piano one of these days. smile

All the best!

Rick

Rick, I was only kidding. I still have the Yamaha G7. No banjos. I was so pleased that I haven't had to have it tuned in over a year. I have tuning equipment, but it has been very stable ever since I bought it. Very Happy! Missed you Buddy!

Sorry, Bill, I didn't realize you were kidding about getting rid of the piano and getting a 4 string banjo; I thought you only kidding about the part where your neighbors hated you. smile

Nice to have you back!

Thetandyman,

Nice to see you back and I'm glad you still have your Yamaha. Had mine tuned and voiced 3 months ago and I'm still thrilled with sound and tone. Nothing quite as satisfying as a well-made, well-regulated, well-tuned, nicely voiced piano ready and waiting to be played and loved, no matter what the brand. A banjo would make a nice addition.

I play it sparingly, but almost a bit nightly. I love the old joke about perfect pitch. That is when a banjo can be tossed into a dumpster from 20 feet!

Doesn't much matter which it lands on first, as long as it makes a hole in one. smile

During the trash collectors strike, I'm told of a man who wanted to get rid of a banjo so he put it in the back seat of his car and parked it with all the windows open on a main street and went for a walk round the block. When he got back there was another banjo on the seat next to his.

oh, man! I thought the punch line was gonna be that the car was gone but the banjo was still there... But the above is even better!

Disclaimer: I have nothing against the banjo, but love a good joke. smile
