The Banjo Style Collage was made in 1967 from some of my LP record album covers.
At that time I was playing seven nights a week with a piano player at Shakeys Pizza Parlor in Knoxville, Tennessee.
These are some of the songs and records I listened to and learned from during that time.
Wow! What an assortment of different ways to play the banjo.
