I had just fitted my new NASA Aluminium Tone Ring from the American Made Banjo company and was messing around with this tune. I really wanted to hear if it sounded as good to me as on a recording. I only recorded it with a cheap mic and my old laptop, but I'm really pleased with the results. Oh and being aluminium, it makes the banjo a lot lighter for all you back sufferers out there!

I think it sounds "spacey" -;). Spacey also means great-haha. Great playing-enjoyed listening

Excellent Banjo Picking!  I was doing a little research this morning on Remo Renaissance Heads, and came accross your picking.

Very Nice,

Greg Connor

Thanks for posting this, Howard. I was curious about the aluminum tone ring sound. Another 5 stars for you :-) Mr. Dizzy fingers :) (Meant as a compliment)

Excellent playing Howard. The syncopated lick at about 1.03 is a masterstroke
