Previous question

Hi Danny, a fellow picker friend asked the following: Hi All, and thanks for your time. My question is- how should I best organize our 3-person band for tax purposes? We receive royalty checks and have legitimate expenses, such as CD duplication, licenses, etc., in additopn to equipment and travel. So far, it's been done under my SSN, with a Schedule C, because it's small potatoes... I send the guys checks, but I deal with the taxes. We are getting to the point where we need to change. I can certainly break out/summarize the income and expenses for my bandmates. How best to do this? partnership, LLC, etc?? I appreciate any advice you can offer. Thanks.

Let me know, please, thanks ~ :)

Next question

have been banging around on a banjo for about six months, and FINALLY saw your youtube lessons.
i've been focusing on ftrailing, but as a 40-year guitar player, that's coming to me slowly. -- my question (or observation) is this: in your 3-finger roll technique, due to the "3" i naturally think of it as a triplet. but it's not, as on the third time thru, you only play the first of the three notes.

sure, i get the 4/4 count, but as i naturally think of it as repeating triplets, and the "third" time thru is abbreviated, it's not quite so "mindless" as one would think. especially as you note that hand should be almost mechanical.
so i was wondering if there's another way i can think (or not think) about my right hand when doing that roll?
