Here's an original composition for cello banjo, an instrument that has been a soul mate to me since Gold Tone reconstructed it from dinosaur bones in 2008.
Style: 3-finger picking.
Tuning: A C# A B E.
Janet Burton told me she thinks "Harvest Moon" sounds like a gospel hymn, which is consistent with the feeling I was trying to convey.
Hope you enjoy it.

A relaxing and soothing tune. I think that comes from both the melody and the tone of the instrument. I can understand the gospel reference.  It fits. Nice work Paul.

That was just wonderful, Paul. I have not heard anyone else play the cello banjo the way you do. What most seem to do is just play basically the same thing they would play on a standard pitched banjo, just tuned way down. You carefully choose your notes to make full use of the very special spirit of those deep, resonant tones.

Don, I've always felt you have a remarkable gift for squeezing sweet nectar from your banjo. I'm grateful for your positive feedback.
