Here is a song I used to do back in the day. I had about forgotten it but it was a good tune to wake the crowd up. I played all the parts but fouled up because I put the banjo part down first and didn't realize I dropped a beat after the first rotation. I started to redo it and said the heck with it and just recorded around it as best I could. I picked up this old Baldwin B model at a pawn shop last week. Dusted it off, tightened the head and put new strings and bridge and it sounds pretty good.

Written By Cyril Kovach. A really unique and interesting tune. He deserves some credit for coming up with something a little different. My recording is kinda amateur sounding but still a neat song. I played all the parts and made all the mistakes myself..

Recorded this tonight when My band was over. We did this just messing around and recorded it on One Microphone. The fidelity isn't the best but I like the hardcore bluegrass sound that this song brings forth.

About all the Pike County anyone can handle. Recorded this one a while back, when I owned a few Hubers. Trey (Major banjo now owns the Lexington) Randy Miller (Vintage Series), Danny Gabbard (Lancaster), Shane O'donnel (Kalamazoo). The Hubers are fine banjos.

This is one that Lee Marcus wrote. It's a great tune. I heard O.D's version a couple of weeks ago and I really liked it. Mine's a little rough as I am still trying to get some of those runs smooth. Some of Lee's phrasing is a little unorthodox for me but they really sound good. Thanks Lee for being so talented and providing us something cool to work on.

Haven't been playing much the last few years. Been getting back after it the last couple of weeks after about a 3 year hiatus from pickin. I have forgotten how to use that complicated recorder I have. It's a wonder that I got anything to come out. I played all the instruments and am rough on them as I haven't played any in the last 3 years.

An old Standard...I played all the parts and made all the mistakes by myself. The recording is a little crackly sounding.

A tune our band recorded one night at my house a while back. Not the best mixing job, but we wanted to see what we had.

A cool tune I created last year. It's in a minor key. Not your typical banjo tune.

A simple version of the age old Classic Shucking the Corn. I played all the instruments and made all the mistakes. Put a couple of Bobby Thompson style licks in along with some standard licks.

Here's my poor man's clawhammer on a couple of Old tunes. I'm actually picking 3 finger style but the results sound a little clawhammerish....
