Great job! Your timing was spot on. I’d suggest doing the 0-2 on the 4th string as a hammer-on rather than picking it twice in a row, but you’re off to a great start!

Thanks for the feedback Michael. Actually, I have been practicing it that way. It get difficult to double pick as it speeds up, so the hammer on is a wonderful idea, thanks!!!

I’m no banjo player but sounds clean to me!

That’s a mighty fine first submission. Were you playing with a metronome? Your timing is impeccable.

I noticed the same thing Michael Mark did, so no additional recommendations from me. Great job!

Thanks, I give the credit to the Twanger!!! :wink:

No, no metronome. I am a simple man. If i concentrate on the metronome, I play poorly. Wait, there is no difference, I should start using it, lol.

Oh man, that was smooth. Great timing and tone, every note clear.

On next video, if we can see just another couple three inches up the neck to see your left hand that would be great.

Haven’t seen it Archie. Doubt it’s there. Was written in 1929, I’m pretty sure, so it will be copy writed for a long time yet.

Unfortunately, no. It is a version from William Nesbit.

I’ll try to capture that in the next one @MissMaggie . I’m still in the “learning” phase of videoing myself. That was with my phone.
