From Briggs' Banjo Instructor, 1855. Sorry about the weird lighting.

Nice. I really like the way you bounce off the notes at :32 and :39. I'm always yakking about those kind of figures in Irish fiddling. You're a heck of a dynamic player. I was working on this tune this morning but kept morphing in Callowhill Jig.

Thanks Terry.  Yeah, the only thing that keeps me from morphing into Callowhill Jig is that I've already forgotten how to play it...  Happy Thanksgiving!

Great stuff. That's a really punchy banjar in your hands. Don't apologize for the lighting, just say it's an homage to Close Encounters.

Paul you play that beautifully !   I'm so awed!

I think your bass string could have been tweaked a bit though.  =8-*

I like the lighting a lot- feels like the sun pouring in the window.   :)
