Here is a new recording of my breakdown. This piece also appears in a short version in my first concerto for banjo and chamber orchestra. The hardest part was to play the backup vamping for 4 minutes without doing wrong (almost). Picked on my japanese FAKE GIBSON.

Bloody great!! You have a unique style, the classical violin and bluegrass banjo really create something unusual. nice only suggestion is some melodic style banjo playing could add to this a lot I think. And oh yes your not bad on the fiddle either ;-) congratulations Gareth

Another musical masterpiece from Salzburg!  Five richly deserved stars for you, Manny.  This is worthy of being featured on classical music stations.  You have blurred the distinction between bluegrass and classical music, and we are all the richer for it.  You are a great composer.  When and how can I purchase CDs of your music?

You had me worried for minute when I heard the vamping and the rolls together, I thought, how the heck is he doing that?  Then I realized you had overdubbed.  Another great fusion of Salzburg and Flint Hill, ubtil you came along I wouldn't have thought those two traditions could come together in harmony.  Exquisite music and expert execution.

What they said. Simply fantastic. I would happily accept a talent transfusion from you to improve my fiddolin playing.

I'd call this Violanjo's breakdown too, couldn't be anybody else's. It fits you well. Another excellent moment of brilliance.
