(Not So) Wordless Wednesday: Theodore Sanchez playing the banjo

I’ve always loved this picture of my great-grandfather, Theodore Sanchez.

This is one of the only ones I have of him when he was young.

The banjo cracks me up.

Did he really play it?  Or was it simply a prop?  Would someone want their picture taken with a banjo if they didn’t play it?

I’m sure that there are people out there nowadays that would love to get their picture taken with an electric guitar, even though they don’t play it.  It would be cool.  Is he just trying to play cool with the banjo?:)

    Even if it was a prop, that is a very cool picture.ReplyCancel

    That is so cool! I wonder if he actually *could* play it. That would be even cooler!ReplyCancel

    He does look very laid back and cool. That’s a very decorative wicker chair he’s sitting in :-) JoReplyCancel

    I’m guessing he could play it. His left hand fingers are on the chord of “C” and his thumb and finger placement of his right hand on the strings is correct.ReplyCancel
