A couple of nice jigs that go well together. I got the first one off a Gerry 'Banjo' O Connor recordings. He capos on the first fret and I did likewise.

Nice job, as usual--very "jiggy" :)
Speaking of Gerry O., any idea why he capoes on the first fret so much? Just to be annoying? (although whoever heard of an annoying banjo player...)

Haha, I don't know for certain, but I'd say he does it for the tonal quality, and having a capo makes it slightly easier to play fast and clean which works out nicely for all his mad triplets. I think he only does it in the company of other instruments that can be capoed- guitar, bouzouki, etc, rather than asking the poor fiddlers to play all their tunes in Eb and Ab!

Awesome playing. You make it sound so effortless! I hope to achieve this level of smooth, relaxed and clean execution while maintaining the feel of the tune. Thanks for sharing.

Gorgeous styling - flowing sound.
