From a happy customer:

Dear Mr. Ryan Thomson,

I received your excellent CD named "Great Bay Stomp" and

their Banjo Tab Book today. I received it by perfect safety package.

I have listened your CD soon. I like your clawhammer style very much.

And your tab book is wonderful. I am enjoying your tablature and

very rare pictures on it. Thank you very much. I don't forget your kindness.

Dear Captain Fiddle,

I'm tired of loaning out my book, so would like to purchase two more: the Great Bay Stomp

banjo tablature....



I've been playing clawhammer banjo for a few years but live in a place where I

can't find a teacher. I bought your Great Bay Stomp cd and book at the Maritime

Folk festival in Portsmouth this October and have been able to learn almost all

the songs. Mostly I just played the CD lots and lots and after a few months the tunes were

pretty familiar and that made it very easy to read the tab and get the sound right. Thanks a

million. It has made playing the banjo a whole world of fun.
