Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This was my first attempt with my new Tascam US-122 USB audio interface, and I'm still learning how to use the software and all. The clawhammer picker is my long time buddy Ed Britt. He and I always wander around on this one. I'm picking three finger style in open D tuning, Ed is playing clawhammer style in double C, up 2.

NICE! Good job with the recording, but mainly the two players were real tight. Nice tempo for this one too. i normally stomp it out too fast.

What a great rendition by a couple of great pickers. This is the best I've ever heard the tune played. Keep 'em coming!

That may be the prettiest Angeline I've heard yet. I always thought the idea of 2 banjo's played in different styles was intriguing. Now I need to explore that more.

That is really really nice. It makes me feel like I'm sitting out on the porch somewhere, in the full summer heat. My fellow BHO member banjospike and I practice together sometimes, she is OT, I am BG. We're both beginners but every once in a while we make something very pretty together.

Unable to add to what's already been said, other than I sure wish I could play like that!

3 finger and clawhammer together - what a sweet sound. I wish I could play some clawhammer too.

Beautifully played. Whenever one of your tunes come up on the jukebox my ears instantly prick-up. Excellent.

So nice to hear clawhammer and 3-finger style co-existing so beautifully.  Don, you and Ed got something special.

A top notch tune! It conjured up images of a couple of guys on their front porch overlookin the smokies! The claw portion is close to the way my dad would have picked it out round about the 1920s! Thank You.
