That's a nice easy going clawhammer rendition.  I like your interpretation of the tune, very banjoistic. Who made your gourd?  It has a great tone!

I'm curious tho as to why you refer to yourself in the third person..in your photo too..?

I built the banjo from a banjo factory kit but asked for a large sized gourd when I ordered from John.  I do a little luthier stuff and have set up quite a few banjos so I just built it doing my banjo thing.  I do a solo show and I have grown accustomed to referring to myself in the third person because of all the advertising junk I have to write about myself.

Well you did a fine job on building that banjo- it sounds and looks great.   :)

Glad you are here in the first person.  ;D
