Hey man I enjoyed that! Good coverage of styles for sure. Laced with some cool phrasing!

A little note about the tune: One of my favourite things to do with banjo is to find short pre-existing phrases that connect seamlessly together that I have never heard played back to back before, and use these to create one new longer phrase. That's how this tune got started. I don't really how or why it occured to me one day that the 1st measure and a half of "Ground Speed" naturally descends (ala "Deputy Dalton") right into the last half of the 2nd measure to 3rd measure of Scruggs' "Home Sweet Home". But once I got that far, the rest of the tune and its variations just seemed to write themselves for me (albeit with a little bit of help here and there ranging from "The Mason's Apron" to an Angus Young inspired lick which in turn has recently become the starting point for yet another tune.
