    This was a whole bunch of work to make, but super fun, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!!

    Thanks y'all!! I wasn't expecting to receive such positive response on such a banjo-heavy post lol

    Fine job. Though I'm a bit surprised that one of those banjos wasn't picked Scruggs-style, Gunnar - recalling your quest to cover it all. Maybe next year?

    Well done. You can tell you're having fun which is one of the big points of playing music! That was the tune to play in Minnesota in the mid 2000s, it was everywhere. I haven't heard it in a while but I'm glad you reminded me of it. A fine tune.

    Oh I've been playing Scruggs far longer than claw, and even a good while longer than mandolin (and a sight better, I might add) but I usually refrain from posting those videos out of respect for the fact that people come here for mandolin content, and scruggs banjo is loud enough to drown out several mandolin threads lol.

    Thanks Chuck! That's just about the highest compliment in my book! It's a very enjoyable tune to play, as well as listen to! I'm glad you enjoyed it!!

    Shove the Pig's Foot is my favorite old time tune and you did a great job! I think that it is amazing to be able to play all those instruments with that kind of flow.
