Hello, friends! As you know, I'm still the only one banjo player in my country, I feel like banjo ambassador here, people didn't know what banjo is but I become more and more popular with this instrument in my country and people started to be interested in what I'm doing, so I tell them about banjo and American bluegrass music ) I gave interview some days ago for the local Uzbek Korean YouTube channel, told them about my banjo story and played a song) I made backing track for it by myself (played guitars too) ) and made my banjo cover version for it) I have interview on Russian language so I cut the video where I just play and sing that song live and I want to show it to you. I need your opinion, I'm the only banjo player in my country so it's still not easy for me to learn how to play banjo right, but I try to create my banjo arrangements and I don't know does it sounds like bluegrass or no for you)))) I just love banjo music and I love to play it) Will be waiting for your comments )

It sounds great to me, and I ain't that easy to please. So, in my opinion you do not need to worry about sounding like anyone or anything other than yourself and your music. Keep it up !
I got Dolly Parton on her banjo vibes from this. Banjo playing and singing sounded great to me!
You can try sticking a 3rd fingerpick on the ring finger, facing backwards, that you can use for the frailing to match the volume to the picking. I saw Pete Seeger do this first who used to mix styles alot.

Great job, Janna. You are a one-woman band in several different senses, and I admire your talent and industry. Keep it up!
Great playing and singing! Hope to hear more from you in the future!
Hearing and seeing this was one of the high points of this evening!
You did that very well!

All right now! Them five strings tie the world together and make it a little bit smaller!
Very nice and enjoyable. Keep picking and singing.
Janna rocks. This all is real 5-string banjo playing, finger-picking and clawhammer. It's all, right.
Thank you, dear banjo friends, your opinion means a lot for me!!! Thank you, your kind comments make me believe that I can, and so I will do more!!! Thank you so much for your support
