Genre: Other / Playing Style: Classic

This is my second experiment with the new mic. Previously, I always recorded myself playing with the piano part in the background whenever I played a piece w/ the piano part; this time I have recorded the banjo part with the new mic and added the piano part afterwards. So here's a nice piece in Cammeyer's more lyrical style; like much of his output, it's a beautiful tune bordering on treacle, but the schmaltz is more than amply redeemed by its virtues as a composition, with unusual harmonies that never fail to make me feel nostalgic and homesick. As far as I know, this solo has only ever been recorded by D. Lillywhite (perhaps by Cammeyer and Sheaff as a duet?). As much as I enjoy Lillywhite's version, I found it a bit too slow (4 and a half minutes for a one-page solo) so I made my version a bit more lively and slightly less sugary. This style of playing is known as Classic Banjo. For more information visit:
