Hi Folks:

Hope this is the right place to post this. I play the electric 5-string banjo, although I do have a Hamer guitar that I have tuned up like a 5-string ... humbuckers are nice. Anyway these 3 tracks ...

http://www.hyperscribe.ca/wmv/3tracks.wmv

1. Mouret's Rondeau (first apart)
2. Werewolf ( by me)
3. Mythical (the title track, also by me)

... are played on a short scale folk banjo with a disc of foam shoved in the back to simulate a solid body instrument, and with a button Schaller pickup lodged between the foam and the skin under the bridge ... the utterly disbelieving may want to visit this page ...

... the hardest part so far has been learning to use the mixer (first time for everything).

Hope you enjoy :banana:

Thanks JS:

What I'd really like is a solid body with a nasty blade :rockon2: ... but until I can afford it the weird little setup will have to do. There are some really cool instruments ($$$$) out there. I especially like necks without a peg head where the strings tension on the back of the instrument ... no pegs and especially no 5'th string peg to get in the way of my slide.

I posted this a few days ago in another thread. It uses exactly the same banjo and setup.

Some pretty interesting stuff you got going on there Boog. I used to own a 5 string banjo back in my bluegrass days. It,s nice to see something unique and creative....keep it up.
