This was a quick recording with my dad while we were messing around with my backup banjo. We got it in a trade with another BHO member. It has a Goldstar GF-85 neck and resonator, but the rim is an old wood rim with a Kulesh big 10 tone ring and the rest are prucha parts. We are still fooling around with the set up. Hope you like it.

Your banjo sounds great.  Young fellas like you are the future of bluegrass.  Do you have 6 fingers on your right hand?

Great take, one of my favorites, and the Kulesh Big 10 sounds great too.

This is the way I like it my friend. State the main melody in the beginning and then cut loose with improv. Really like your picking.
