Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Earl, Don, Ralph, JD, Jim Reed, Jim Mills. I like the "old stuff" and older styles. I admire many of today's younger "progressive" artists, most notably Rhiannon Giddens, but I have always enjoyed collecting records from the 1920s through to the early 1960s. That fifty year period of American music is my favorite: Bluegrass, Old Time, Blues, Hokum, Rags, Swing, Hillbilly, Country, & Rockabilly. That's for me!

My friend the great Jim Reed on Bluegrass Banjo! I'm just trying to hang in there with some backup for Jim playing the rest of the instruments: Soprano & Bass Banjos plus some snare drum. That's my hillbilly family (Wife & Son) contributing the "Rebel Yell!" ;-)

I learned this tune from the John Burke book and from watching a kid on youtube playing it on a Gibson longneck. Your version is superb.
