Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

A multitrack recording using a Tascam multitrack recorder, a very slow, lazy and very simplified version of Larry Unger's tune "Elkins." Enoch 12" Tradesman (stuffed with a small towel at neck joint) playing lead in Double D, Martin HD-28 guitar on rhythm, Cloud Nine Marimbula on bass (use headphones/earbuds/other good speakers to pick up the sound), H. Luger CV-300 fiddle also playing some lead. This is certainly not a note-for-note accurate banjo version of Larry Unger's excellent tune, nor as good a version as Jason White's on YouTube (which is outstanding as he compares it being played on five different banjos), but I have attempted to capture much of the essence of the tune as I hear it.

You do a great job on the tune. We must have noticed it on YouTube about the same time! I was searching at the time for Dobson tone rings, found Jason White’s playing it with five different banjos, and was taken with the tune.

Thanks Dan... yep, i copped Jason's version, but in 2-finger thumb-lead style.
Anyway, "Elkins" is a tune that definitely could use more exposure.

Nicely done Dan. Agree with Ken about more exposure.
