Loved your playing. Can't beat the sound of three clawhammer banjos played well. I heard this tune recently for the first time played by a friend at a festival. He mentioned the the term "Greasy Coat' refers to condoms. With the lyrics being what they are, I guess this is not one to sing when the kiddies are up.

Hi, thanks for the kind words! One of the banjos was played in three finger style by Ed Borchelt. You can hear it stand out particularly in the high lead. You're right in that the other two were played clawhammer style.
