This piece was recorded with my Deering Sierra. I bought that banjo from Mr. Lou Boeyens. In his younger days he was ,besides a great musician, a great entertainer. Anyway, once I got used to it, it's a great banjo.

Fine picking on that. I have a Sierra too but can't play it quite as well as you. :>)

The banjo you see on my profilepicture is a Gibson Mastertone copy. It plays very smooth. That banjo is more than 50 years old and it went broke. It's now in repair for a new neck. All the other pieces on my page are played with that banjo. The Deering is a lot rougher to play, but just that calls for more decisive articulation. Anyway, thanks for the nice comment.
