Just found this on youtube. It's a dashcam clip, with a kick-ass banjo track. Anyone know who's playing this?

No idea.
Nice to see a piece of highway I've been on, immortalized in a video.

Free Advice from an Old Person:
Hitting the brakes when an aggressive taligater gets too close, MAY result in a collision, with damage to YOUR vehicle. And then you are stopped on the highway, with an angry agrgessive person right there near you.
Why not just turn on the 4-way flashers , and maybe slow down a little?

I don't know who the banjo player is but I would like to know the name of the song.

On another note: I had an old Volkswagen Beetle at one time which had a switch under the dash. The original purpose of the switch was to turn on the rear window defroster which had long since quit working. A friend of mine rewired the switch to my brake lights so I could flip them on when someone tailgated me without putting on the brakes. That got some interesting reactions.

It's a real good tune by an accomplished player; don't know the name of either.

I agree with Mike's advice about your car possibly being damaged and the aggressive person. But, going even further, that tailgater was lucky he didn't get into a more serious accident that could have maimed or killed him, not to mention that his vehicle also could have entered the other side of the highway under the right circumstances resulting in a head-on. As much as the tailgater needs an a**-kicking, he doesn't deserve to die and certainly neither do any innocent folks in the oncoming lanes.

I'm pretty sure I have that song by Eric Weissberg. A little different but very similar.

I was thinking Weissberg too; it has that feel about it. Something to go on at least. Thanks!

Whoever is playing is probably a young dude. I used to have "flying fingers", but those days are long gone. Even I could play that fast, the other retirees couldn't keep up.

Whoever it is..and j dont think its weissberg...anyway
There use of melodic phrasing is good...but there rootimentric basic roll has many stopping points..just not complete ...what happens when a player didn't spend enough time on the basic roll timmimg ...players like weissberg..bobby thompson and other well know Legends had much better foundation guess some cross over country session player that was an established side man....not saying it ain't good
It just isn't legend status my book...and just my always
