I just posted a personal video of a classic old cowboy tune - Ghost Riders in the Sky. I'm still working on smoothing out the banjo break. Hope you enjoy it!

Nicely done.... it’s a cowboy song all right, but not at all traditional, although it’s presumably based on a legendary Texas stampede incident and its extended aftermath. Written in 1948 and first recorded by author Stan Jones and his Death Valley Rangers. Ironically, pop singer Vaughn Monroe recorded the most successful and widely known version. It’s a great song and has stood the test of time as a mainstay of the Western song repertoire.
That was good, an old favorite of mine and very popular and most requested tune up on the Rez in Phillips Co. Montana around the towns of Hays and Lodgepole.

Great tune Shawn
That's a really good version Shawn. Nice one!
Here's mine from high up in the hills of North Wales, UK. It's not Scruggs style, but it's my arrangement as I couldn't find any other. (So it might be wrong in places) youtu.be/MCMGRNJCod0
Played on my antique HC Nelsen.
What do you use to film and record? I see your mic, but what's it plugged into?
Mine is just a phone...
Nice work Shawn!
