I'm using a different preamp and this is the first complete instrumental I've recorded with it. This is a Ralph Stanley tune called Clinch Mountain Backstep.

Interesting take. Never loses that all-important drive.

Great picking, Doug. That is about as fast as this song should ever be played. I cringe when I hear people want to burn it.
I heard some elements of Billy Ray Latham, Doug Dillard, Rob Bourassa, and Ron Stewart in there. Sounds like you listened to a lot of different versions then incorporated a little of each into your own style. Well done.

Nice Doug!  My wife recorded us several years ago on an a pocket camera. I was playing my Helix longneck without the resonator. I should have had my Deering or Stelling for more punch. But - you nailed it.
