    This is pretty cool...I'll pass the info along to my sons. I have one who is a pretty dang good banjo/guitar player, but is still learning...and one who is learning to play. The third is trying to decide which one to put the most effort into...a guitar or a banjo. But I'm pretty sure that one of them will want to learn some of these songs. Thanks for the post Jen...

    Daddy, I miss you more every day. You will always be my hero..
