When they took me to the studio first - that was Joe McCoy and Mayo Williams - they let me wait about for hours because the studio wasn't free. So I said to myself "What the hell's the use of this; I better go home to see to my customers and give them that moonshine" - Kokomo Arnold, in Paul Oliver's Blues Off the Record

I recall you mentioning you were working on banjo playing a while back. If you're still playing banjo, and it has steel strings on it, try switching to Nylgut strings. I reckon they sound better, and are much kinder on the fingertips doing all those clawhammer slides in sawmill tuning.
