Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

This is the first thing I recorded on my new banjo... a 1926 TB1 conversion by Arthur Hatfield. This thing has got a real gutsy low end that doesn't quite come through on the recording. Oh well... this recording is the best I can do with what I have.

The middle part is supposed to be backup, not a high break. I read something recently that the late Al Osteen said: "always practice the whole song including the backup". So that's what I try to do now.

Matt: I like it has a bluesy kick to it and the Banjo sounds great!
