Curbside treasure . . .

Posted by bj on Tuesday, September 15, 2009

So I have a few fiddles, and a guitar, and a washboard, and I just got a banjo. As of today I have the potential makings of a whole band.

Around the corner from my house there was a curbside pile from a landlord cleanout. Lo and behold, on the top of that pile was a thing of beauty and rare wonder . . . a fabulously rusty old bigass washtub.

So, of course, I  HAD to stop and throw it into the truck.

Time for another trip to Miller's Hardware!

Ya know, what with this washtub-bass-to-be, and the washboard, that's really pointing in a jug band direction... lessee, get a kazoo, put in onna rack, play the bass with your hands, and the washboard with your feet (LARGE thimbles!) Voila- one-woman jugband... without jug. Still, it'd probably be a great hit busking! Or, let Jane play the washtub, and you get a banjo mandolin!

Now, all you need is a genuine Ozark pickin' bow, and some fiddle-sticks for beatin' the strings. ;o)

CDs going out in tomorrow's mail! :o)

Multi-track recordings are a wonderful thing for multi-instrumentalists. I can hardly wait to hear you sawin', pickin', 'n' thumpin'!

I think next I will attempt to bow a saw . . .

One can only wonder what my son will say if he and his GF ever catch me busking while they're wandering the streets of Lambertville with their friends.
