Time to drop the other shoe... You've got to have a wah-wah pedal some where.

I think your banjo has a cold solder-it sounds fuzzy!

Looks fuzzy....sounds fuzzy...IS fuzzy.

Funny....playing it just the same. Just a different context. Gives me something to think about.

Yes, I think that's why I preferred "Johnny Boker".  I didn't like the electrified minstrel banjo sound.  The mic made it lose the plunky sound that drew me to it in the first place, though with some technical experimentation (which would be way beyond my knowledge), maybe it could be "resolved".

Aside from the modern context, I really liked the looseness and playfulness of the piece. I think it embodied more of the spirit of minstrel tunes than most videos posted here. Nice job Tim!

I sort of liked that trashy banjo sound....sort of like some of the Delta sound when it went to Chicago.

The banjo's right there with the vocal, the drumming is perfectly sloppy, the bass is playing a danceable line. The singer is lonely for home. Yup. Blues.
