For enthusiasts of early banjo

Here's one from Phil "the Phantom" Rice, 1858. (You'll see his spirit flit by at 1:15)

I've been working on this one, sounds like you got it good. Bit chilly for outdoors playing huh? I need to acclimate to the season, I'm supposed to be playing outside for a couple of hours in a couple of weeks.

Oh my, that was great Paul!  I can practically hear the rustling leaves...

Both spooky and fun.  That little poltergeist at 1:15...!   =8-o

This tune is very complex yet you make it sound playful and whimsical.

Ha! Yeah the fingers are a bit thick from the cold, but I wanted to get a video of my phantom friend here on his special day.

Thanks Strumelia. Yes, that little event at 1:15 surprised me when I played it back! I managed to isolate that split second on the video, but can't make out what kind of flying beast it is. Curious...
