First of all, I used the backing track put together by BHO member Jan Erik Stokke aka "erstokke", from Norway. Jan Erik provided the guitar, mando, and bass via his backing track, and I put the banjo on top of that. I thought of this as a long distance jam... one guy in Norway and one in North Carolina, and with that in mind I decided to record my part in one take, warts and all. I made a LOT of mistakes, but I kind of liked the bouncy feel. Thanks Jan Erik!
Update (2013): It turns out that I hate the bouncy feel. Hate! I have worked hard to get rid of it... maybe one day soon I will post a new version.

Glad to know you enjoy my backing tracks. Long distance jamming - at last the internet can be used for something useful! Ill be back with more backing tracks later! Jan Erik

I like the fact that you don't try to race through the tunes as fast as humanly possible but rather, play them at a little slower pace and thereby more relaxing to listen too. Nice work.

I'm late here, but it liked it a lot! The bounce was really pretty well syncopated for walk. I like it!

Gotta say this is a fine tune, very well picked and easy on the ears!
