Cripple Creek versions played on my Burlile-powered banjo. Enjoy! Last B-section is inspired by Jim Mills.

Had to do this one! It really showcases what prewar tone and Bluegrass picking is all about in the key of G. Oops...did I just say prewar tone? Yep, my banjo's got it, now!

A friend was gracious enough to allow me to record my banjo on his AKG...is it prewar or not?

Cut from a friend's album on which I played banjo. He was gracious enough to allow me to post this song for purposes of demonstrating the Burlile tone-ring.

Featuring the Stonemans...one great tune! This used to be my favorite fast tune, and one I aspired to picking one day. Unfortunately, no one knows it!

Break as played by Sonny Osborne on the Osborne brothers album "Bluegrass Concerto." Hope you all enjoy! My favorite part is the last little tag...so sweet!

Jim Mills...he inspires me almost every day. No wonder why I picked this as one of the numbers to exhibit my new Burlile-powered banjo! The high break is my own creation. Jim...thanks for the great pickin'!

One of my favorite tunes. I remember seeing this first on the "Three Pickers" project featuring Skaggs, Scruggs, and Watson. The song didn't really catch my interest until I saw Jim Mills do it at a live show in McKinney, Texas. That version got me hooked! Now, whenever I go to a jam or festival, I try to revive this often little-known Bluegrass number. Thanks, Jim!
