Nice job Paul.

Baur is SO original. And traditional.....and supports the idea that Briggs' book actually sounded like how some people played back then.

Not sure I follow...

There is a quote......I will dig to find it. Baur was saying that "the Briggs' book gives a very good idea of how the banjo was played" back then. I think it was in a Stewart Journal.

But, Baur has all these wild and creative things...Electric Light Reel etc., and then some fairly straight ahead stuff. I think that book is just peachy.
