View Full Version : Tenor banjo and parental neglect
"Okay, Dad; you just had to do it. All the other kids are using a piano for accompaniment in the recital... But me."
Boccherini and Banjo (http://vids.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=vids.individual&VideoID=41019371).
Very nice Ted and daughter. That song always reminds me of Ernie Kovaks. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif
Okay, Ted, while you may just get by Childrens Services this time this event will be filed in your childs memory. My oldest daughter, Nicole 34, called me a couple of months ago at 3 AM to tell me she had just seen a movie about her childhood. It's all my fault that she is like she is, she told me. The movie was "A Mighty Wind".
Oh, I forgot. That was fabulous.
Very nice, Ted.
Clyde, you might wanna give some more detail on how your daughter feels a Mighty Wind mimics her life... there's a lot there to make us wonder even more about you! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif
Nice playing for both of you. Treasure these moments. As the father of two teenage daughters who are seriously embarrassed by anything I do (musical or otherwise), I can assure you that these times will fly by soon enough.
That was absolutely wonderful!

Hopefully Clyde wont be mentioning barking tree spiders.
One word, Ted: tripod. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
Good one, Mike. I still need dramamine watching my wife's videotaping. My favorite is the point where she shoots 5 seconds of my mother videotaping the recital...
Two thumbs up!!
I wish I had been there to give you my personal standing ovation.
Wonderful, but a question.
If you are playing a banjo, doesn't that make her violin…
a fiddle? #http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif
Actually I love the instrumentation. Kind of like a real "parlor" event from the 19th century! (lets not get too exited about when the tenor came about!) I love the fact that the violin and banjo are balanced volume wise and can easily carry a large room with no sound reinforcement. Priceless times for you Ted and your daughter is progressing quite nicely on that "fiddle!" 15 months and she already has a good sense of time and not bad intonation. Congradulatins! http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif
