Paul there seems to be a problem with the post you put up for this tune. I am unable to post a comment and get an error when I try. Here's what I was going to say:
Sweet indeed! Love this one Paul. The strumming works great on this instrument too and the recording is top notch.

I love the sound of the banjo on this. It is a banjo correct? I'm new to the banjo and am looking for my next banjo. I would be interested in the model and setup of the one used to play this beautiful melody.

I listened to it a few more times and now it sounds like it could be a guitar or as Phil mentioned a dulcimer. But I hear the faint patter of a banjo head in the background. Mmm.

Actually, it's a cittern (5-course octave mandolin) that I have set up like a banjo. What's being called "banjola" would be the closest thing to it, unless you strung a guitar with a high string replacing the 6th, which some people are doing.
