Live gig.  Recorded on my Zoom H-2--what a trooper that thing has been.  Just banjo and vocal.  The banjo is a 1923 Gibson Trapdoor TB-3 conversion.  I"m playing what I would call "Mountain Blues" these days, mostly in two-finger style.  Please let me know what you think and be honest!  I"m the rare person who doesn't get defensive and actually thinks criticism helps!

I like it.  Sounds old, and I like old.

this sounds fine, both the playing and the good singing.  I'll have to evaluate what i've heard about the  Gibson trapdoor and start looking for one.  I think two-finger sounds terrific with this type of tune

The Trapdoor is a wonderful banjo and complements this kind of music perfectly IMHO.  I considered selling mine but after hearing this I changed my mind.

F A B U L O U S  . . . sounds very modal, love the tune!  Are those nylon strings?

Nice!  Both the banjo and vocal are well done.  I play that two-finger style too--in open C tuning.  But I can't sing a lick.

Thanks a million, that means a lot.  All of the comments seem to be positive so far.  As for the strings they are light gauge steel, not nylon.  My other banjo, a custom Skipper has Nylgut strings and also sounds pretty good.
