My New Toy


The Six-String Banjo pictured above, the Gretsch Roots Collection G9460 "Dixie 6" Guitar-Banjo, with its "neat sound, familiar and ancient, yet new and exotic," was waiting under, or rather next to, the Christmas tree for me from the missus. The ancient yet new hymn "What Child Is This?" was the first number I attempted to play on it, followed by Charlie Poole's familiar yet exotic (not to mention fun) "If the River Was Whiskey."

I'd really like to get one of those, and one of the new Gretsch roundneck resonators. Enjoy!

Yeah, those resonators look like a lot of fun.
