With genuine, sincere apologies to J.D. Crowe, perhaps my favorite Bluegrass banjo player, this is a clawhammer/frailing (!) version my favorite Bluegrass tune, "Blackjack," and in the key of G -- rather than the traditional key of B -- no less (!). My three-finger banjo playing is just not my strongest suit. Multitrack recording where I'm playing clawhammer banjo (Pisgah Woodchuck standard G tuning), guitar, bass (marimbula), and a few fiddle chops. All the instruments "kick in" after the first go round. As always, headphones / earbuds improve all the instruments' audibility.

A worthy contribution from the "dark side", Dan.
Likewise, I love J.D.'s playing but never could master a single lick.
I can hear it.
On the flip side, I played the 3-finger version of Old Home Place on a Wildwood Troubadour while testing it in the shop. You should have seen the looks I got... To be honest I thought it sounded pretty good on the Tubaphone ring. Maybe I'll post a recording of it.
