BanjoChris- Listening to the Anthology is what prompted me to learn to play overhand banjo, and your Coo Coo tutorial on YouTube was the main tool I used. Your open string pull-off explanation was a game changer!

Thanks always great to hear from a satisfied customer! And Rafe and Clelia are wonderful musicians and people both.
