This is just plain amazing. Such delicate and evocative picking. It's been a long time since I've heard anything this sweet!  The melodic double stops, the subtle tripletts, very understated and subtle.

I want you to play at my funeral.  Of course, I haven't scheduled it yet.

Yes, a beautiful old traditional Irish melody.   Exceptionally well done, and respectful to the tune.

Thanks for posting.

Doug , I just have to ask , do you use some type of sound enhancer in your sound system as the tone from the instruments is just over the top ?
Really decent !

Hey Bob,

Thanks so much!  I'm using stereo micing for the instruments, and mixing in pro tools.  Each track usually gets some eq and compression, and then the mix bus gets some attention too.  

The blue tracks are the banjo, guitars, mandolin and bass.  The green track is reverb.  The red mix bus has a spacial imager and center plugin, F6 EQ, some quick SSL compression, Aural Vintage Exciter, another exciter I forget the name of, and some smooth compression, a limiter and the loudness meter.
