Here is a song I used to do back in the day. I had about forgotten it but it was a good tune to wake the crowd up. I played all the parts but fouled up because I put the banjo part down first and didn't realize I dropped a beat after the first rotation. I started to redo it and said the heck with it and just recorded around it as best I could. I picked up this old Baldwin B model at a pawn shop last week. Dusted it off, tightened the head and put new strings and bridge and it sounds pretty good.
