Ok I'm almost finished with these posts from this jam session... This was 5 friends jamming in Knoxville on the well known Bill Monroe instrumental Jerusalem Ridge which is a fun, haunting tune to pick. This cut is pretty long, almost 6 minutes. We got into "the groove" apparently! This recording captured my first version of this tune back then (6 years ago), I hope to be recording my current take on this tune. This tune definitely lends itself to some pretty banjo work... Recorded at a Knoxville, TN jam session 12-27-06 in Bob Holmes' living room on a digital recorder with pickers in a circle. Nice relaxed picking... Frank Eastes (banjo) Bob Holmes (guitar), Jim Lethgo (guitar), Marvin Gideon (mandolin) and Dennis Wilkerson (bass) ... thanks to Bob Holmes for the recording. We were all sitting in a circle with a digital recorder on the floor. The banjo is a little soft in the blend, I think the recorder was aimed away from the banjo LOL, but it's in there enough. In memory of Marvin Gideon
