I donĀ“t like my old version of El Cumbanchero anymore, so here is a new one featuring a slow intro and outro.

No fair - you've been practising! lol! Yeah, that was great Manuel. That was a complex arrangement, had moments of humour as well as high drama. Both banjo and fiddle played to a very high standard - enjoyed it!!

I think he plays 24/7 Laurence.Somebody else probably posted this for him..LOL. What can we say? Another Masterpiece!Some great variations. Like the classical overtone the fiddle adds. Definetly at your best on this one!

Wow! That was impressive Manuel! Great job arranging and executing that. Were you able to each part in one take?

That's great!
It's multicultural, different , spectacular....
How do you manage on playing on such amazing way?...Maybe is the food you eat?
I think there are many things that I have to learn.
See you soon.

Let me give you some off-the-wall feedback. When people reach a certain level I feel they have an OBLIGATION to help humanity in some way. :-) That is how I felt a long time ago about Steve Martin -- and I was pleased he picked up the banjo again to help popularize it.

El Cumbanachero (although done MUCH more ecsquisitely than I am sure any of us have ever heard it!!!!) is still "been there, done that." And certainly pieces like "Classical Gas" are also already in the public's view.

Because you are classically-trained you have access to classical music pieces that probably few of us have ever heard. And you have the talent and now audience to really popularize such pieces. It would be WONDERFUL if you could KEEP GOING and keep your ears open and perhaps bring in a whole new repertoire of "hitherto unknown" classical pieces that are suited to the banjo -- but that no one has yet done on the banjo. Every once in a while a new one comes down the pike (like Brilliancy) and then lots of people learn it and it helps the banjo world to grow and reach new levels.

PS. Your new banjo absolutely rocks!
