I love my low E style seconds. Very warm, pleasing tones. Nice rich harmonics. Great for solo work.

long advertisements before I have shaken anybody's hand.

I met Hamid when the PFWSS needed a pan showman. We were so lucky,

then I met Smokey who taughtme all I knew on double seconds, tuned in the key of c by Herman Guppy Brown, then we lost Smokey and a whole band of talented youths are waitinng carry on his legacy.

I play a low F# style double seconds.  I do a lot of solo and melody work.  It works very well for me.

The Low E, Ellie Mannett style, very popular in Antigua.  Still enjoying it.
