Nice. The way your hand strikes....sounds good. It has a different effect from "brushing" on the strings as is commonly done. Gives the music an entirely different lilt, and fits the instrument so well. Nice tempo.

Lovely music!  Clean banjo picking, and a good blend with the fiddle.

Yes...those decisive Strikes.....sound so good. Deliberate, solid, and it really drives the music.

Mighty slick. It sounded fun and that's what banjos are all about.
