Hey Folks,

I've been working on this tune recently trying to get it ready for a banjo contest this weekend. I think there are still a few kinks to work out in my arrangement and timing. Let me know if you have any suggestions!

Thanks for listening!

Best wishes on the contest.

Apropos the Prucha, someone posted a link (I can't find the BHO post) to an account of why there's bluegrass in Czechoslovakia (i.e., Czechia and Slovakia these days). Internet searches point to a book ("Czech BLuegrass") by Lee Bigwood and/or interviews with him. I haven't read the book, but a lengthy article was fascinating.

Thanks, David!

That is very interesting! I would love to find that link.

CBSplayer -- Just use your favorite search engine for Lee Bigwood and Czech Bluegrass, and you'll find several interviews and articles -- if the whole book is too daunting at this time.

Congratulations!!! I admit, this comes as no surprise to me! I know some banjo champs and you remind me a bit... Nerves would be about the only thing to keep you from winning most contests, I think, if playing like you have been sharing. (I've seen nerves affect the playing of some GREAT young players in the really intense contests.) Keep at it and you will win a big contest, I believe. On the other hand, winning banjo contests doesn't always pay the rent...hah! Keep up the great work.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate it! Nerves are a big handicap for me but hopefully I can attend more events and overcome some of them.
