    The author of how to play the 5 string banjo as well as doing a few other things...

    Much longer thread and tributes to Pete over in P&R of all places.

    Remember hearing "If I had a Hammer" pretty often on the only station in Amarillo Texas back in the day.

    RIP to a good man. I doubt the chemistry is there for his and his genre of folk music to ever be mainstreamed again.

    I was raised on Pete Seeger music. My parents are old lefties.

    I remember most of his songs as sung by others, but his contribution to the music of my development was massive.
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    His moral compass was so clear, and he so friendly. The planet was lucky to have him.

    A troubadour of truth, love, peace, sister/brotherhood, work, protest and the power of community! He lives on in what he has given us.

    Listening to his Broadside Ballads as I write this….

    He gave us a lot more than a portfolio of music, that's for sure. Glad I lived some of the times he did.
