Thanks. A lot of this stuff becomes "Bach like" to me, rather than thinking of a fiddle piece. The way the banjo transforms it is unique. Just in my own head, but that is what the music does to me. Especially for so many in the "Back of the Buckley". I really love and feel the symmetry of the pieces....the balance of the phrases and lines. The slower tempo the banjo is forced to use seems to bring out that quality.
