    Default Eddy Davis passes away

    Somehow I didn't know about Eddy until this morning when a friend mentioned him. He died on April 9 from complications due to Covid-19. One obit is here. Another is here.

    He is known for his tenor banjo playing but also played tenor guitar and mandola.

    He posted quite a few videos on YouTube in the kast few years playing chord melody arrangements of jazz standards. Here is his YouTube channel.

    Here are a few threads about him on MC (there are more):

    I wouldn't want to be pessimistic but if anyone should hear of a demise that's COVID-19 related, please post. Thank you.

    Sorry to hear this, R.I.P.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.

    Wow, so sad. Eddy was one of the best. Really enjoyed his tenor guitar videos.

    A bunch of stuff with four strings

    Oh, no.

    I had thought he was doing better, and then life got complicated and I lost focus on this.

    This is a great loss. Eddy was always a great teacher and generous with his knowledge. The world is poorer for his absence.

    @Jim, thanks for the heads up.
