This is a self-indulgent thing in which I multi-tracked myself on banjo, fiddle, mandolin, and guitar. I hope that my version of the B section is correct, I worked it out from a recording downloaded from the Pegram Jam site, and it seemed to me that the fiddlers were doing a couple of different things.

You really need to indulge yourself more often.  Very nice all around.  Nice production too - I did a double take when I heard the booming bass line presumably played by the guitar.  Either you have a killer guitar (and good acoustics) or your are a wizard at sound production to achieve that effect.  Thanks for posting this.

Thanks. I did not do anything to the sound, other than amplifying each track to the same level. I think I cut back the gain slightly on the fiddle and mandolin, and slightly up on the banjo. The guitar is a Sigma classical that I bought as a second (it has a cloudy finish) for $120 in 1981, I think. It has always had a great warm tone, heavy on the base, but I can barely do anything on it. I wish it had a neck more like a steel-string guitar, but I like nylon strings. But really, I don't particularly enjoy playing guitar.

Your a banjo picker, self-indulgence is a prerequisite character trait.  How many banjos do you own? I rest my case.  Anyway, very nicely played, all instruments.  Please indulge yourself some more, for our sake.
