Okay, I fell in love with this tune about 12 months ago, and figured it was about time I had another go at it. New Microphone (so much better quality!) and some good advice from some of the folks here.

I just had to. Sorry to all of you who've heard me do this over and again, but I had to have a go with my new bionic elbow! My all -time favourite tune, on my 'Vintage' fitted with Nylguts, whilst drinking Zider in the garden. Hear those gulls screeching! (pesky flying rats!)

After a lay-off of 12 months I'm back at the Banjo! So my first offering since resuming playing (very gently) in August 2013. I think it has several names but Western Country is what I know it by. Lots of drop-thumbing to get my technique back up to speed :) Yup, it speeds up - but I'm not fully fit yet and my endurance is still not what it needs to be! Just loving being back in the saddle.

A tune I learned from the Mossy Roof (Seattle) String Band Class pages, because of all of the drop-thumbing. Nice tune with some good rhythm and fun to play.

Loosely based on the Skillet Lickers 1920's recording. I was trawling YouTube and came across this tune and couldn't get it out of my head. I decided to learn it from my dusty memory of the tune and this is my version. It does vary distinctly from theirs, but I enjoy playing it so what the heck! On my Vintage with Nickel strings.

My newer, but not very polished version of my arrangement of this Skillet Lickers tune from the 1920's. What the heck; it's got a Banjo and a Dog in the title: what more does it need really? lol!
