Thanks I enjoyed that. You should work something out with Marco Levi (CGDA) online and play one for us!

I love listening to jazz played with the 5-string banjo and fingerpicks: the tone and phrasing are very original and a little far from what is usually done with 4-string banjos, but when the instrument is in the hands of musicians like Laurence, the result is truly awesome and 100% jazzy. Bravo, that's great!

Thank you my friend. Yes the 4-string and 5-string have a different approach but it's all the same music!

well done Laurence! I found very difficult to have a good swinging phrasing on modern jazz with banjo both on four and five string: modern jazz language is full of ghost notes and accents that give the particular flavour and for me are difficult to apply on the banjo... so I admire your way of playing!
what about your open back?

Wow! Just tremendous, Laurence. There is so much to learn from this solo----I can't capture it in words. I wish there was a tab on this stellar arrangement. Thanks for this very swing'en post.

Thank you Paolo!  The open back didn't work out. It's a long story (too long for here). I will tell you about it sometime. 
on the phrasing, I listened to enough jazz that after awhile I could internalize it. I find it not as hard as learning all those scales.

I chose the “like” button only because there isn’t a “Stunning” button. Really musical. A great arrangement of a great song. Thank you Laurence.
