I can play "Clinch Mtn Backstep", not sure how much it sounds like Ralph.

Ralph could get that old back-woodsey, high lonesome appalachian mountain kind of sound. That's what I like about Clinch mtn backstep. I'm glad I got to see him in concert a few years ago.

Every time I play is Ralph Stanley influenced - I find myself playing a lot of licks in the heat of the moment (gig or jam) that are straight up Ralph and instinctively slide back towards the bridge to get a "near" arch top tone out of the flat head - met him years ago and told him he was the reason I play banjo - he said: "thank you son." It was awesome.

banjotef, he was a pioneer and unique, think he had 10 people in his family that played banjer,
too bad they didnt make a video.
the king family in n caolina (can oder from PBS) also have a great video of ol time mtn. music.
