OK, I know I said that last week would be the last of the webcam features for awhile! But as Robert Burns said, “The best laid schemes o' mice and men gang aft a-gley.” The feature I had planned for today simply isn’t ready, so I’m sending my banjo-playing self into the breach. I did find a rather low-tech solution to the banjo causing the webcam mic to “clip”—I sat further back. Now if I can just learn to look at the little webcam’s “eye” when I play….
Regular readers will remember “Shake Sugaree” from my Elizabeth Cotton feature in the Guitarists We Like series; I play it a bit faster—I’m playing a banjo after all—& my singing certainly is no match for Brenda Evans’ (nor is my banjo playing a match for Elizabeth Cotton’s guitar!) but I really get a kick out of this song. Hope you enjoy it too.
No post tomorrow, so wishing you all a happy Sunday & Monday.
