Greetings Banjo Hangout!

Here's a quick recording of "Big Rock Candy Mountain". (I'd be interested in feedback if anyone feels like providing any.) I'm hoping to learn how start recording video soon.

Also, I'm new to Banjo Hangout and I'm excited to start chatting with y'all! :)

A very nice rendition. Takes me back to the hootenanny days of the late 1950s and early ‘60s. Check out John Greenway’s version. Whole different story in the lyrics.
What tuning were you using?

Thanks, y'all! :D

This was recorded using "Double-C" tuned up a whole step on my A-Scale (ADADE). I used my Gold Tone AC-12a that I got recently.

I just found the lyrics to the John Greenway version, but I haven't stumbled across a digital recording.

Nice!! Played it years ago, but never sang. Need to revisit and add my voice. Lol.

Very nice. You did a great job. Your voice was amazingly on spot with the pitch. Keep it up.

I'm touched by all the positive feedback and warm welcomes! It does a lot to boost my confidence, especially since up until the start of this year I pretty much exclusively played banjo alone at my house. I'm really excited to start participating in this group of fellow banjo lovers! :D
