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

The one string Fiddle is found all over the world by different names. From the Zezé of Tanzania to the Erhu of China (probably carried with Silk Road traders along with Indigo and salt), earliest examples of these humble instruments can be found in the ancient temple hieroglyphs of Kemet and Kush.
Played by applying downward pressure to the gut string while bowing with the opposite hand. ••••••
This is a locally built gourd type Zezé by Eddie Osborne on Etsy.

The Round Peak Banjo/Fiddle style and other Southern idioms contain many elements of East African folk and Mandé style phrasing probably influenced by the enormous African presence in the Early Americas.

Calabash gourds being dried out and cut, readied for the market where they will be used for everything imaginable from musical instruments to common household items.

A truly sustainable biotechnology that has been an integral part of West African life for eons. We could stand to learn a lot from this ecologically friendly and intelligent approach to industry.

Ah, the day she arrived and became the Sun to my Earth. Ah my ancestors; who knew driving a stick through a vegetable then affixing animal guts as strings would generate music? My beautiful beloved Brian Carver gourd banjo @brncrvr #brcrvr #carverbanjos #gourd #banjo #gourdbanjo

Made a fretless gourd banjo with a kit from @brncrvr banjos. So much fun! Hand sanded and finished the neck, hand painted the gourd, stretched and tacked on the goat skin head, and strung it up with some nylgut strings. Fretless is a lot of fun! Friction tuners however... gonna take some getting used to. The good news is it holds a tuning very well. #fretless #banjo #gourdbanjo

Some day I will take a day off. #gourdbanjo
