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, 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!

I'm so excited to be back on, I only wish I had something interesting to say, but I will be lurking at all times. This was my favorite website.

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!
