    OT Accordion and Banjo awareness

    To help celebrate accordion awareness month ( and Garys Banjo awareness week) here is a rare archive recording of F Chopin playing the banjo accompanied by Georges Sands on accordion. The effect is quite revolutionary.

    I used to play Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring" on my banjo. It fits really nicely in the hand. (In the interest of full disclosure, however, Pete Seeger did it before me.)

    That was really nice. I've a fairly good ear but I couldn't keep up when I tried to play along. I was only teasing you know. Sorry

    Hey! Nothing to apologise for, you need a thick skin (or head), to be a banjo player
