Recorded this on my laptop trying to combine a bit of "Keith" style with Scruggsy style. Banjo - where too much fun is never enough !. Enjoy !.

Multitracked myself (Audacity Software) with Jaw harp, Mouth organ, Soprano Ukulele, Bass and 5 string banjo. This was harder than I thought. My bluegrass banjo training was mainly 4/4, but it seems these Celtic jigs are in 2/4. Also, the Celtic songs have a shorter sustain on their chords. So there is not much banjo on this, but I thought it would be of interest to banjo players.

Genre: Old Time
My Grandfather taught me how to listen to music. He taught how to love pure music that came from within. He taught me this song too. He passed away in February 2009, and left me his Amena 4 string in his will. (Amena is now a discontinued brand). I recorded this on my laptop during a melancholy moment on the Banjo he left for me. I am usually a bluegrass man who plays with finger picks. This time, I played with no finger picks to give his banjo a hillbilly feel; the feel that he loved so much.

This is where skiffle, country, bluegrass, honky tonk & blues meet. (I believe "skiffle" is called "Jug Band" in the USA.) I have multitracked myself with all instruments & vocals. The instruments are Soprano Ukulele, 5 string banjo, Resonator guitar (lap), electric bass, 6 string non-pedal lapsteel. I used the uke for the rhythm rather than a guitar to give it a skiffle sound. For some reason, I can't get a better banjo tone in the recording. Any suggestion would be helpful. Thanks for listening. "...tell Him what you want".

I am quite proud of this banjo break because it is in the Key of "C" with no capo.
This was a challenge to make it sound like an authentic blugrass break given the more difficult key (for me anyway). The "F" in this break does not include the high "G" string (I am proud of that !). It is a combination on a foward roll & the "Foggy Mountain" roll. Also, I have made the Bass to have a more of a jazz feel. I did this to take it out of a pure bluegrass context; just to add a bit of spice. (Used "Audacity" software to multitrack myself). Sorry for the banjo tone, but I can't seem to improve the recording of my banjo. Any suggestions would be appreciated !.I would like to thank Alan Munde for the idea of the "descending" "C" lick. I would also like to thank "my Glory", who is also, the "Lifter of my head", and a "Shield to me".

I am multracked on all instruments & vocals. I also composed the song. Also, I played the ending with an extra bar; making it a 5 bar ending to acomodate the reso/dobro guitar ending riff. The banjo is bluegrass tuning played in open "C". PS - I hope you like the Hank Snow radio intro.
