Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

This song is dedicated to my friends in Alabama, which I will always consider home. Played in G out in the front yard with the poophounds on a no-name 1920s "catalog banjo," the kind most Southerners could afford. Fair warning: I'm singing on this one.

Nicely done! It doesn't get much better than playing in the yard on a jo thats more conviction than finery.

Well, I must admit that I was wearing overalls at the time. Thanks to you all for your kind comments. I do enjoy playing.

It sounds like you're up picking here.  Great job, well done.  With up picking it is harder to maintain a smooth, chugging rhythm, and you pull it off nicely.   I like Yopp's remark about the banjo- "more conviction than finery."
