I watched it this morning before I went to it from this topic.

I did not know it was you, although I know who you are from BHO

Fabulous playing and that banjo rings like a bell. Is that a Hatfield ?

to me the song sounds better in the D tuning. (ref: Struggs Foggy Mtn Banjo).

I also like it in D. This version is based off of a live show Earl did. Maybe I'll do a video on the D version as well!

I do like it in D. I also like it in G just fine. Tony Furtado, as Earl did years before, pretty much drove it home John Henry can be just fine in G.
