Only the middle of March and already sitting out on the front porch...

Nice Paul. Hey what kind of camera are you using, the sound is great?

Thanks Terry.  I'm just using my iPhone 4 -- it's embarrassingly low-tech, but i'm amazed how well it picks up the sound.

Very nice,

That's low-tech?  Sharp picture and good sound.  Great playing, too.

Works pretty well as a phone, too...

Nice job. Good feel on the triplet section. I actually found the root tune for this. Under the title "Camptown's Hornpipe" (NOT as seen in Briggs') from Howe's Omnibus. At least the the first section holds to it. The second section seems to be some gonzo banjo riff....making it a unique tune.
