From our 2008 CD "Front Porch Pickin' and Singin" on Ramblin' Records......I'm on banjo, mandolin (rhythm) and grandfather, Johnny Jackson, is on lead vocals and rhythm grandmother, Edith Jackson, is singing tenor...and my wife Cindi is playing bass.

This is fine family singing and Reno-style banjo picking of the highest caliber, with some original touches and ideas which only add to this venerable tradition.  With clean, hard-driving double-stops, bluesy string bends and a consistent attack throughout, this is mighty fine picking ... makes me want to play along....  Keep it up.  Great stuff!  I lost my first wife, so this song really hits home for me.  I think I must incorporate it into my repertoire, for Kathleen.  Thank you for the inspiration.

Congratulations, that is some very fine Reno-picking. This is the thumb brushing technique, right? Must be hard to learn. I also like the bluesy stuff you add to the song.

Superb, I can hear the influences of Eddie Adcock as well as Don. Well done, James!!
