Hi again Danny ( thank you for your continuing patience).

I was wondering if you have any theories to help playing and singing solo with banjo. The great players seem to be able to fade out to playing nothing with us filling in the gaps- their knowledge of the song is so concrete.

Also it's a difficult instrument to sing to- all high and generally single notes not chords.

Sorry I'm on a night train in london and a bit tipsy. You should come to the UK if you can.

Thanks Ritchie

it is a bit of a trick. but here is a formula. low is high high is low everybody has to play the drums. in other words. just play. in an era of folks being quite overwhelmed, minimalism is always a good response from art.
