Stumbled across this one a few days ago while reviewing Deacon Buckley's Jig on the same page. Nice thumb exercise anyway.

Yea, when the banjo plays it a bit slower it almost takes on a Classical feel. I really like that. The tempo helps one appreciate the balance in he phrasing. There are several like this in the 1860.

I'll take a look at this one.

I listened a couple of times and started to play along.  I suppose by the time we get to Antietam, It'll be completely gone from my mind, however.  Remind me when we get there.
