Well, if you’re Kentuckian David Barnett, you make a gigantic banjo bridge. He used time in his carpentry class to create a monster bridge measuring 22” long and 7” high. Can you just imagine how a banjo that size would sound?
David tells us that it really amused his teacher.
“I just couldn’t make a regular sized bridge that sounded good enough, so i made a giant one.
When he saw it, my carpentry teacher said: ‘Banjo Players…..what will they do next!’ “
Let’s hope that this concludes his experiments in banjo gigantism.
