Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Other
Played on a 12-inch open back, made from hollow-core door veneer. Remo permatension head (No brackets!) The style is sort of Scruggs rolls, bare fingers, with the occasional down stroke whenever I felt like it.

Hey Mike....This doesn't read back too well...I meant my comment as a compliment!

Both songs are over a century old, so, yeah, it DOES read like ai must look to be older than the sound of a pair of century-old songs.
But, since I carefully cultivate the mustache and hat and the whole outfit, to SUGGEST that I might be a remnant from an earlier era, I'll take it as a compliment.

This reminds me of the banjo pickin ferry boat "captain" in the movie Outlaw Josie Wales (sp?) where he remarked that to get by, he learned to play Dixie and Battle Hymn with equal passion depending on the uniform of the passengers.
Really enjoy your posts - they are entertaining and never cross the line (unless you thing too deep about it).

Very cool Mike! I have never heard the Hymn played in anything other than stricktlly Scruggs style! I like your twist on it!
