Dr. Banjo has a ton of great breaks throughout the years, which one is your favorite to pick? I imagine 99 Years (and One Dark Day) is the most popular, so, what other ones do you like?

Should’a made this link part of my OP:

3rd Break is at 1:56 or so but do yourself a favor and listen to the whole song!

His chromatic break on Little Maggie, from the Music Minus One LP. Available in tab on his website.

Also  like "They Cant Put It Back" with the Fiction Bros.

Anything by Pete is great.
His right hand attack is the epitome of drive.

I seem to recall it refered to as the N.Y. rhythm.

Maybe if he reads this he could correct me if I'm wrong

Like J.D. Crowe Pete Wernick's pull-offs are very snappy and exciting to listen to. I think the pull offs give a lot to the style.

Wild Ride 1st and 3rd breaks. 2nd is ok, but I can do without the phase shifter. Even with it, that picking is top notch.

Hard to pick one, but I think some of Hot Rize's best songs had that chugging, boogie-like groove--"Radio Boogie", "Untold Stories", "Life's Too Short", and more. Pete did an especially good job on that material.

I like playing the solo for Montana Cowboy. There are many others that I like to listen to, but it’s the only one that I can play at the moment. I’ll have to do something about that.

Listen to his opening salvo on Think of What You've Done on the Hot Rize Take it Home album. So clean and those pull-offs are outstanding. Snappy. I like what he's doing on Sky Rider on the most recent When I'm Free album. And the whole On a Roll album, just all of it. So enjoyable.
