Oh, so wicked, makin' us all want to rip open our wallets !

It's of mine own invention Al, though if you straightened out the rhythm on the first part I have a sneaking suspicion that it might sound like Circus Jig!

Strumelia - Oh I'se so very wicked! I'm actually thinking of keeping it myself unless I get a really good offer!

Is there no end to your wickedness?    lol

I find that the timbre of these medium to small gourd banjers strangely reminds me of Jamaican steel drums.  Maybe it's also your rhythm/syncopation thing as well coming into play Mark.  But that tone....is it not caribbean steel drum like, or am I just nuts?

I get the same feels from my smaller gourd, starts to sound like a kalimba or a wooden xylophone music box thingie :)
