Here's a couple of classic country songs with banjo as lead. There's more to life than Fireball Mail.

Good pickin' Simon!
A great example of Blues and Country Blues on the banjo.

These are great videos. I do this kind of music all the time with my banjo but I play "clawhammer style" so I'm a bit of an outcast. The Bluegrass forum concentrates on "Scruggs" style and the Clawhammer forum concentrates on old time music. I don't seem to be welcome on either forum so perhaps I'll start posting here.

I think you still may continue to post on the Clawhammer forum. I think the old-time community sometimes need to broaden their views. But be careful when you give clawhammer advices. As I have understood, you have an own style of "clawhammer" (or what ever it shall be called) and you should be referring to your style, not to clawhammer in general.

Good job, I've always enjoyed seeing what can be done with the old-time country.

Who made you the clawhammer god? Why did you follow me to this forum? I don't need your permission to post on the clawhammer forum. You are poisoning these threads with your condescending attitude and self-described rule for the description of clawhammer which you refuse to provide evidence for. Now you're lecturing me on being careful for giving clawhammer advice? Give it a rest.

I will not go further in this discussion. I have the right to be in any forum here, and so have you,  devil

Okay, you two, let's be civil and not flame one another. It will get you both a lockout time.

This is a version of Sixteen Tons I worked up several years ago.

I Still Miss Someone is a good classic country song to try on banjo.

I can't think of any country song that a banjo can't play to.
Dad's favorite was I Overlooked an Orchid While Searching for a Rose.
One of the bands I play in does mostly Country and I often think back to Dad's pedal steel for inspiration.

These are some great examples of some old time country blues. Now, I'm hoping someone will post some songs like these played on a 6 string. That's what I play and I'd like to get some new ideas from watching others...

Here's another classic country song that with a quicker tempo has been adapted to bluegrass.
