There was a recent discussion of "Country" banjo. Here is my interpretation of playing in such a style on a classic Hank Williams song.

''Eddie,'' what a beaut job you've done on this, it's probably my
favorite ''Hank'' song, but then again, he wrote so many good'uns. Goodonya, it's all good. - - Don.

Thanks Don, The biggest trick in the style seems to be getting some sustain. I played it w/o picks and moved away from the bridge to mellow the tone a bit. Have found a way to do it on the tenor? Tremolo?
