Bravo!  A wonderful rendition!!  I especially liked the arrangement, with the tune played once in standard march style, and then again in a ragtime style.  Back in the day, it was pretty common to "rag" marches like this one.     

This really shows what a plectrum banjo can do.  And it also shows that the right hand work is just as important as the left. We (me included!) tend to focus on getting the chords right and having clean, fast changes.  But all the chords in the world don't mean a thing if your right hand doesn't have the technique to produce accurate and also varied strums that will carry and accentuate the rhythm.  SETH

Great stuff from the great Brad Roth. Tremendous style and beautifully played. Thanks for helping to keep the plectrum in the spotlight, Pat.

Enjoyed hearing Brads version Patrick, yes, he's most certainly got all the tricks.

Hope you don't mind me joining the ''Blaze Away'' party ......

And here's the tenor banjo version:

Although I also saw one or two plectrums in the band, as well as a five-string (!) that most likely did not have its fifth string, since it was being strummed.  SETH
