Yea, we need more of that! Nice. First time I've seen the banjo twirl thing. I like the percussion with the feet.

That's very cool. I saw Clarke do that back in '92 (along with the true 'twirl' master, Leroy Troy). I've incorporated that twirl to "Briggs Cornshucking Jig" (during the strums: strum, strum, flip, strum) and it always gets a gasp from the crowd.

Oh, and if you've never seen Leroy do his thing...here's a youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DrPI-JrQVoU

This is the movie of "Ole Tar River" which I sought surely!
This tune is 1 piece of music in the popular music in America which was played, being the first time in JAPAN.

Does the banjo tutor of this tune have somewhere?
