Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

The Bluegill Buddies live adjacent to that region of Missouri affectionately known as "Little Dixie". The combination of the old nylagut strung banjo and the lute-like octave mandolin restores the tune with a feel a bit closer to the era in which Dan Emmett composed it. The banjo was restored by Colin Blair of MusicFolk in St. Louis, Mo, complete with a calfskin head. Banjo is tuned down 5 half steps.

Forgot to mention that "Bassora" is playing the octave mandolin; it's not an overdub.

I like the tone of your banjo here. I wish it was just you playing though ,, so I could hear you better. Real old time sound , I like it. Is this the fishing line? and what poundages ?
