Thank you.

Wow, I just love that tone.  What a beautiful sound.  An excellent execution.  You've made me a believer in Nylgut strings.  I must get a worthy banjo.  I must learn to frail.  Having played nylon-string guitars, I must now play nylon-string banjos.

Good heartfelt picking, doesn't get any sweeter than this.  The tone is wonderful with those Nylgut strings, very elegant.

I have never heard a better rendition of this song.  Ron Thomason of Dry Branch Fire Squad says that slow clawhammer is much harder to play than fast songs.

Beautiful. Stephen Foster would be pleased, I think.
