A video randomly popped up yesterday on youtube, and I couldn't help myself...clicked on it, watched it, then another one. She plays different styles (Scruggs or is it 3 finger, clawhammer)  and different genres. This one, Starting Over  popped up on my feed this morning.  She plays a Bishline and a Pisgah, so she must love her banjo music.  She only gets a couple hundred views on her posts, so you might consider watching one (or more) to boost her viewing count.

Nice playing.

Yes, she plays well, her "Snow Drop" is very pleasing.

I only wish she would ditch the strum machine accompaniment.

Yep, Snowdrop is my favorite clawhammer tune, the one that got me to buy a banjo.

I went back and she does play Scruggs style (with picks) on at least one video.  With her Pisgah on another, she is playing with out picks, and I was thinking it was two finger, but it could be 3 finger.

Yes, that's one of the problems with her using the strum machine as a backing track. It's hard to figure out what she is actually playing vs what the computer is playing.
