My Grandfather, John Edelhauser on the left and Russel Davis on the right. Mr. Davis taught me to play my first instrument, the ukulele. Mr. Davis could play any instrument, including fiddle, banjo, bass tub, guitar and piano.
My uncle Kenneth Edelhauser taught me more about guitar than anyone else! Thank’s Uncle!
Boyd Hudgens has written a new banjo instrumental under the inspiration of his wife, Debbie. As the story goes, Boyd was sitting on his front porch, honing his banjo skills, when he heard an interesting sound coming from the bushes around the corner. What made the sound so interesting to Boyd was that it was in perfect time! He began to improvise to the beat and continued playing the new tune over and over. All of a sudden the sound from the bushes stopped and Debbie appeared with her pruning shears. She asked Boyd, “What is that tune you’re playing. I’ve never heard you play that before. I like it!” Boyd said, “Well, I heard the sound you were making with those pruning shears and just started playing along with ’em!” After going over the tune several times to refine it, Debbie came up with a name for the tune that seemed appropriate…”Snippin’ Around”.
