The China-Japan-Korea Industries Expo was the coolest thing ever. There were robots of all shapes and sizes and tons of VR goggles and machines. And then on the second floor there was an art gallery with a room of gourd art. And in China you can touch the art, so they let me play the Gourd Banjo. #robots #virtualreality #gourdart #gourdbanjo #chinahorizons

Don't really play slide much but thought I'd throw it in on the gourd banjo. #gourdbanjo #mountainbanjo #banjo #handmadeinstruments

I got me a Menzies! Been an admirer of @menziesinstruments banjos for over a decade and his instruments were an early influence on my builds (they still are). Love it. #gourdbanjo #fretless #custombanjo

Gourd Vance banjo from a while back. A beautiful local Redwood neck on a nice looking gourd. Sounded and played fantastic...

progress pic of my gourd banjo. chiseled out some real ~funky~ sound ports and added the thickest matte finish to retain the natural look. #instrumentbuilding #gourdbanjo

Sunday 🌱 I slept in until 11 am for the first time in years. Then, I was greeted by a warm plate of food made by a kind hearted woman I call my mum. Feeling lucky to be living today. Feeling well enough to take up singing and dancing through these halls.

It's getting weird in here #gourdbanjo

Completed "Strum Strumpf" on the way to Laurent Dubois at Duke University where it'll be used for his Musical Passage project (www.Musicalpassage.org).
They'll be using this banjo to record the earliest transcribed music for a new world banjo type instrument. My reproduction based on an image in the same 1701 book the music was published in and is pretty faithful to what the original would've been like, though I modified it to make it easier to play. .
