Thread Name: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
Subject: RE: Pete Seeger's Banjo virtuosity
Wow..this is #umpteen thirty plus post to the thread.

I guess there's Pete the banjoist, Pete the folksinger, Pete the songwriter, Pete the music educator and Pete the political activist. The thread was started to discuss the first point, but most of the others managed to get into the discussion.

I like Pete the banjoist (but not exclusively), admire Pete the folksinger (when he drops his politics), can take or leave Pete the songwriter(my favorite is "Hold the Line"; he's up front in that one), have learned from Pete the music educator (very dog-eared copy of the '62 Ed.) and cringe at the thought of Pete the political activist.

So there.

And I use my real name.
