Well, since you all tolerated my singing on that last one, I thought I'd post another from my days some ten years ago picking with Brian Clancey and Tom Speth. This is not your 'grass Fireball Mail, I'm afraid. Brian is playing finger style guitar here, a sound I really like with three-finger style banjo. Banjo is a semi-fretless Paramount in open D.

Hello Don. This sounds mighty fine to me. I too like your combination with the finger-style guitar, it really suits the song. Regards Peter V

I love your arrangement of this song, what a great sound. I gonna have to work on getting something similar to your style.
I am presently learning your arrangement of Deep River Blues, great version.

Sounding good Don, as usual. Different take and different sound in D.
