Just a couple of days ago I decided to learn how to play this incredibly melodic tune written by Paul Craft (as played by Ben Eldridge of The Seldom Scene), and I think I've about got it down. There are a few rough spots, but that's to be expected since I'm not Ben Eldridge. This was played on my custom banjo with a Huber tone ring, Frank Neat neck, and Factory Floor rim. It was recorded with a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder, and was mixed and edited using Audacity.

Here's me taking a crack at Revere by Béla Fleck. I learned it pretty much all by ear, so it's not exactly the same as the original, but close enough. This was played on my custom banjo with Huber HR-30 tone ring and Frank Neat neck, and it was recorded with a Zoom H2 Handy Recorder.

Here's me playing Temperance Reel on banjo with guitar backup (also played by me). The banjo used is a Gold Tone OB-250 Archtop, and the guitar is just a low-end Jay Turser. Enjoy!

Here's my attempt at Up on the Blue Ridge (aka Vestal's Opus). It took me a solid three weeks to get this much down, and it's still sloppy in places. The version of the song I learned from was what Scott played live on the "A School of Bluegrass" album with Doyle Lawson, so it's not quite as fancy as the version with all the crazy triplets in the second break, etc. I did get the ending lick though! This is played on my prewar RB-75 knockoff with the fancy Huber HR-30 tone ring and Frank Neat Neck

I figured I'd learn that infamous second break after I'd been playing the 'B' version for a while. The timing's a little off but it's pretty good, I'd say. This was played on my custom banjo with Huber tone ring and a Frank Neat neck.
