Mixing it up from our usual old-time repetoire.

The banjo is a perfect fit. Are you playing with a pick?

Yes, but not a flat pick. It's one of those clawhammer picks. While it's not perfect outside of it's intended application, you can get away with some tremelo picking with it.

In this group I use the resonator on my banjo and the pick just to be heard, as I can't always count on a sound system at our gigs :)

Really great to here the banjo in lesser common styles!

A little more Klezmer from the solo unamerican clawhammer contest challenge

Also, I wrote a few Klezmer clawhammer tabs for the Banjo Newsletter back in the 1980s and since they gave me permission to distribute my published tabs as I see fit, you can request that I upload copies of them (Broiges Tanz, a Bulgar and Af Shabes in Vilna).
