Using the Hooks thimble for the glides in De Bones -- makes it so much easier (for me).  I couldn't get my pinky to do the pull-offs in M 3 & 7 of De Bones, so.... I eliminated them.

Paul--The arpeggios are nice and smooth.  Good job.  Is your banjo in E/A tuning?--Rob

Thanks Rob.  The banjo's in G/D or thereabouts.  I didn't retune this a.m. before playing...

Where did you get that second part? Flesher variation right?

Correct.

Nothing says it has to be a pinky.

True. I should try the ring finger... Inertia....

You can hear those bones rattlin'! Nice playing.
