Another great tune from the 70's. Bill is a great singer,songwriter and this is one of his best I think. I'm on comping banjo, guitar,baritone and tenor banjo parts and the lead banjo is played with bare fingers and a mute. Some reverbs, volume edits,panning and EQing. Done on Audition.

My funky blues version of the classic fiddle tune. This is for my contribution to the thread about this tune on the Sound-off forum. This ain't your mama's version, so be warned..lol The tune is also known as Black Mt Blues and my version definitely has the blues oozing in it. But it wouldn't have funked nearly as much without John Kuhn (AKA the 'Kidd') adding his percussion and bass lines! He also did all the mixing.

An original composition about one of the highest elevation points in this part of Surry county,NC and near to my house. This is the first time its been recorded in a band context. I recorded it earlier on a fiddle/banjo duet album. This is with the Rain Check Band-Alan Conrad on Guitar, Dennis Severt on manolin,Jack Steelman on Bass and me on banjo/reso. Hope you like it.

But, being 'me', I tuned in open B tuning and threw in a couple of my twists on the B part...couldn't help myself...lol. No reverb, metronome or other stuff here...just me and the banjo

Here's a cut from a local mandolin players solo CD. I played Dobro and Banjo on a few cuts. Here's a cut with my old Flathead. She sounds great and Westley Easter is the man with mic placement. I think Darrel Webb and Junior Sisk were on vocals with Brad Wood singing lead (he's the CD owner). Cant remeber who sang bass.

Another original from an older Cd."Fiddle and Banjo". Glen Alexander on fiddle. I named this after a local Indian landmark..otherwise known to the white man as "Pilot Mountain". Ther are a few bad note chioces in the banjo second break, but we did this whole albulm live with one take only, so as long as it didnt ruin the whole performance, we left it all in there.

A version I thought up this week before Christmas. I used two banjo tracks, one rhythm banjo and one lead, using a homemade mute. I like the staccato effect on the banjos. John Kuhn (aka the Kidd) added some bass, synth string sounds and a conga. You can tell how much I love flamenco guitar, and it somehow wound up influencing this, in my banjo version. This is a great song and i hope my version doesn't detract from it.

Rain Check's cover of the Rowan tune. This was recorded live at radio station WPAQ this winter. I loaded the WAV form the recorded broadcast and did some cleaning up, EQing and other mastering things on my Audition software, just to see how much I could improve the mix and sound quality. It made quite a difference.

Heres my banjo take on the Christmas favorite. I've always loved Vince Guaraldi's version that was featured in Charlie Browns Christmas cartoon. This one has 5 banjos and I used a Keyboard cleaning brush, on the banjo head, to get the brushed sounds from the original recording,haha. Add a bass banjo track with the tuning dropped 3 whole steps and you get a pretty nice sounding bass string,haha. This was a fun project .

I was glad The Kidd decided to provide me with drums, guitar and all the mixing. He also added his banjo and we had fun working this all out. Check out my triple banjo threat-haha.

Just a snippet of random picking on a freind of mine's style 11 conversion. This is a great prewar banjo. I just got finished with a set-up a day or two ago and have been 'breaking it.

I found this CD while cleaning up a stack of them. This was recorded in 2000(?) with a group called Wood And Steel. We recorded this live in an old auditorium, if I remember correctly. This was my granada with Ryan tonering.

An orignal that came from messing around in C minor tuning and looking at my Regulator wall clock. This will be on the upcoming "Rain Check" Cd project. I used my old 80's GF-100 Gold Star for this cut.

This is my band Rain Check, performing at the Blue Ridge Music Center back in July of 2014. This is our cover of the great old VanZant tune. I was playing my 1980s Gold Star GF-100. Man what a kick butt banjo it is in a good PA system.
