Good picking and a great sounding banjo.

Good job! Practicing with a metronome will help you keep your timing. You can crank it up a notch every-once-in-a-while. Practice it until you have it "bullet proof" (Pete Wernick term) Keep up the good pickin!

Well done, Dave! Your picking is quite clean...and that is much more important than being "fast." So many new pickers try to pick fast before they can pick it cleanly, making their tunes sound mushy. And as Murphy says, "Speed is not important." ;^) You are right on target! Keep up the good work!

Your banjo has a very good tone, too!

Yep, really well done!!

And I agree the KIDD comment on the HO/PO - I find this hard to keep on the beat and tend to let it 'race' faster than the picked notes

Thanks all, going to load up some more this weekend, so find a good ear doctor, because after listening to my playing you will need to be medicated and cats will be howling everywhere. Seriously Thanks a Bunch- these types of comments keep me motivated
