Double banjos on Big Scioti. My son wanted me to learn this, but I only knew of Adam Hurt's fine version, which was different from what my son played, and also near-impossible for me to figure out. I listened to Mark Johnson's claw grass version and numerous youtube versions. From all that, I came up with a composite. In the B part, I go with the bluegrass way of playing the C major chord before the E minor. I prefer the OT way with the Em first, but none of my picking buddies do that. I inserted one major glitch for your listening enjoyment.

Nice version Lew. Listened hard but did not catch any glitch, major or otherwise.

Richard, Glad that you liked it.
Skip, I'm always happy to put a few glitches into my picking.
