More About Grandpa Jim

Hi, I'm Jim Schaper

I’m currently staying home waiting out the virus. I. Playing on Streetjelly more often now along with many others.
Fun Stuff about the Artist

Life on the Street

I once got a ticket for "Playing Banjo Without A Permit" by the music police at an outdoor festival.

Embarrassing Moment

Don't tell banjo jokes with a guitar on your lap. Lesson learned.

My Instrument

My first was a Gibson L48 I got in 1966. I still have it. There have been many since then but now I use three instruments, a Gretsch, a Taylor, and an Iida banjo.



I was in a music store one day buying strings and noticed a black Gretsch hanging on the wall. I checked it over and noodled with it. A couple days later went back to visit the guitar. On my third trip (just to see it again) I caved in and brought it home with me. It asked me to take it home. What else could I do?
