I've been learning a lot from Ernie Hawkins over the years. So many of the ideas apply to the banjo as well as the guitar, so lately I've been trying to apply those ideas to my banjo playing, starting with the country blues/ ragtime idea in C.

That is some really terrific classic style picking, Nic!  Did you compose/arrange this yourself?

Thank you, Don.

This is largely improvised around a theme. So, yes. I can claim the improvised ideas, but this is based on Rev. Gary Davis' ragtime style pieces in C.
