My daughter recently turned 13 and, being a fan of Kermit the Frog, asked for a Kermit puppet and a small banjo for him to hold. I started fooling around with the melody to see if I could come up with a way to play it, as a present for her birthday. I wanted something that sounded a little different than the way it is normally played. After a couple of weeks I settled on this version. My friend Bob Hall, @BlueRain43, provided the double bass part. The banjo was recorded with 2 iPhones and a Blue Yeti Pro USB mic at my house. The bass was recorded with fancier stuff at Bob's. Happy Birthday Emily and thank you Bob for your help. Headphones or hi-fi speakers are recommended for accurate reproduction of the double bass (instead of laptop or phone speakers).
