Hi Jim, and thanks!  I am tuned DAD, and this tune is called "Shaving a Dead Man" (a popular banjo tune).

John ,

Great sound and technique!  What is the name of the tune?  Are you tuned Dad?

I am wanting to start concentrating on banjo tunes and am picking and strumming with three fingers.

Lisa, that's awesome!  I have a few survivors from my childhood, but antique malls and flea markets have helped to replace some long-gone items over the years.

I actually have my own piglet in my office, near me when I play music by myself. By some miracle and a kind family friend, I was reunited with my long lost stuffed Piglet that I used to love and play with some 55+ years ago. Sadly, my original Kanga and Pooh were not saved.  But i have my Piglet!  heartbeat

Thanks so much!  That was certainly a goal (the successful banjo sound).  It's just nice to have fun!

Those quick hammer-on/take-offs you are doing have a way of suggesting the characteristic thumb string rhythm of the 5-string banjo... making this more of a successful 'banjo' sound than I typically see from banjo/dulcimer playing.  Good job John, fun to hear!
