Basically clawhammer with, maybe, a few of my own ideas -- but there's really nothing new under the sun, is there?

Now, it just doesn't get any better than that. A voice with a fine timbre, tickling ancient tones from the simple banjo. Just superb, a true inspiration.

Now this is what an Old Time banjo player and vocalist should sound like. Sung from the heart in the player's/vocalist's own style.

I love your version of Rye Whiskey. You voice fits the tone of that banjo very well. I'm inspired to get better.

All been said above Bill but you really nailed this one and it could easily be put into an album of old time mountain style banjo tunes.

Love it! Don't know if its been said before, but you do sound a lot like Doc Watson...which to us old time lovers is a very good thing!

One of my favorite tunes & singer of all time. I really enjoy your playing, Bill.

What is the tuning and what banjo/setup are you playing?

This is late in coming but I feel as the rest of the folks above. You would mesmerize a room of people with your laid back mountainous style. I hope your appreciated amongst those who know you. Keith
