In F# no less..LOL Mighty smooth, good attack and slide action. Just the right amount of bounce! Great break!

Thanks, John. I was tuned up a half step and playing it in F, just like the Foggies did it. I was practicing along with the album before I made my recording.

FIVE stars from me!!! - Yeah Jim I can see why this is your favorite break, it's this kind of stuff that made us all fall in love with Earls playing - fluid, almost playful and just plain RIGHT. And you just communicated all of that in your example here - there's no way I could have played it like that.

have to agree that this was a very good job on this break. i'd like to hear you play the full song. And yes it's just this type of playing that made me a banjo lover
