I can't say I play anything like Ralph, but I'm sure influenced by him....

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.
