160 BPM! Well, it is breakdown time now! That is the fastest I can pick and bow right now without loosing (almost) control but only on breakdowns. I think I even could pick a tiny bit faster on banjo but on fiddle I have reached the limit. Adams County Breakdown has always been a favorite of mine. My interpretation consists of bluegrass picking and bowing styles but as usual I do some unusual things too. While searching for a suitable back up on fiddle I thought I give a try to some classical playing techniques. Furthermore the banjobreaks are picked in the key of A whereas the breaks on fiddle are played in the key of G. It is a small detail but I like this effect. I had to make a lot of takes and still it is not perfect. Oh by the way the strings are on my banjo for almost 8 months now. Do you think I should change?

Manuel - great job! Don't worry if it is not note perfect - we are pretty forgiving around here, my stuff has mistakes ALL over it! lol! So 160 is pretty fast, imagine how fast you could play with NEW strings!, like, without all that rust slowing you down!!!!

Manuel, that sounds rather rapid. Are you sure that only 160 bpm, sounds more like 220 bpm.

Wow! Nice arrangement and still clean at that speed (which I checked against my metronome).
