This haunting melody was written by Jay Ungar in 1982 and used in the Ken Burns documentary on the Civil War. It is done on a Bacon Flat-top plectrum. It was written as a goodnight waltz at the annual Ashokan fiddle and dance camps held by Ungar

Beautiful! Coulda' sworn that was a 5-string!

I'm glad you said that. I was trying to get back to the roots of the plectrum banjo. Turns out that the first plectrum players were five stringers who played with a flat pick. I had this in mind when I did this, and I think it's cool you picked up on it

Fantastic Kevin! I also play four string banjos (as well as 5 string), and I sure wish I had your tremolo!
