Now, how could you not love a tune played like that? Excellent, John.

If only I could play that well.

Very, very well played!!! The only problem I had with it is when I turned it up loud enough to enjoy, the sound would clip like you may have had the input level set to high???...or maybe it's my computer. At any rate it's a lovely tune played perfectly.

Thanks for the kind feedback.

I cranked 'er up loud and I'm not getting any clipping, strumn1. I also re-checked the wave form in Audicity, and there's no sign of clipping. FWIW, I was using a new recording method. I put my Zoom H2 behind the head while I played the banjo. My first few attempts did result in some clipping, then I lowered the level and it seemed OK.
