Yet another go at running before I can walk! I never learn!! This is from the Janet Davis Ultimate Banjo Songbook (sorry Janet, for making it sound nothing like it should).

Here's my attempt at Cripple Creek after 9 months - I know there's lots of room for improvement! Apologies for the bad recording quality.

I love this tune - this is an attempt at Sean Ray's version of it. I know there is a lot of work needed but I AM working on it. The up-the-neck break is really difficult for me, but I'll get there! Need a good ending to finish it off properly - any help would be much appreciated.

For those gluttons for punishment who wanted a bit more of this - here it is! Country Blues plus a bit of Pretty Polly, from the arrangements by Terry McGill.

I thought I'd have a go at something a bit more adventurous - probably trying to run before I can walk with only 9 months' playing experience, but for me this was a good exercise in 'keeping it going'. Poor recording quality down to my partner's aged laptop; poor playing quality entirely my own responsibility.

Met up with Hangout member Gradleyduck on Sunday who very kindly lent me the tab for this - it's very much a first attempt, but hopefully it sounds reasonably ok (it was recorded on my phone, so not the best quality). Jane C has already uploaded a nice version of this, and she's inspired me to have a go. I'm trying to work on the next bit which involves fast movements up and down the neck but I'm severely hampered by sending my improvised 5th string capo (the top off an old biro) whizzing across the room when I get a bit too enthusiastic!

First attempt at Turkey in the Straw for the great group Turkey-in-the-straw-athon at the Eagle Music/Deering event in Huddersfield later this month! I know it's a bit basic at the moment but I've got almost 2 weeks to work on it - hopefully it can only improve! Constructive criticism always welcome.
