Really liked this one. Good programming on the banjo too. I used to play banjo and it sounded good.
I used to play banjo myself 40 years ago!!!!!!
I had one that cost me two weeks wages, and sold it some years later for a poorly sum.
I loved Flatt and Scruggs, I've got an album of theirs from just before they broke up in 1969.
This tune is one of three I midified from the Run C & W album. The others being, Walkin' The Dog and Hold On I'm Comin'. I'll post the last one soon when I've Garritanized it!
I, like you, and many others was inspired to learn the banjo after hearing Earl Scruggs. He pretty much invented the 5 string banjo melodic way of picking.
But then I grew to love the so called Newgrass. With the Newgrass Revival Sam Bush started a more modern form of bluegrass that explored all types of music in an acoustic environment. The NGR revival also featured Bela Fleck on banjo who, now of course, leads Bela Fleck and the Flecktones along with Victor Wooten and his brother.
I'm also a big fan of Jerry Douglas, dobro player, who plays with Allison Krause and Union Station and has a slew of solo albums as well.
I'll have to listen out for some of this New grass stuff. I'm sure I told you before, I use some of the Nashville factory peoples tear in the eye songs when gigging. As I get older I'm a sucker for sickly sweet tunes.
Bela Fleck instead of the Dixie Chicks, Tim McGraw and Alan Jackson.
