Good sound and good mix Robin. I love that you have incorporated this great old tune with these lovely "antique" instruments. Thank you for sharing.

It's neat to hear these two old instruments paired, Robin!

Thanks Dusty - I learnt the tune from a youtube clawhammer banjo lesson.  I've found the limit of the Audacity timeshift tool, which is about 100th of a second.  Annoyingly, that's just enough to place a little phasing between the tracks (I was playing tighter than the recording would mix hairpull ).

I mixed it on a set of Behringer Media 40 USB monitor speakers, which are far more bass heavy than the AKG Reference Headphones K702 that I normally use.  So this has a lighter touch on the bass than the track I mixed on headphones yesterday.   I really love the AKG headphones as they are totally neutral but I think the Bheringer speakers probably mix more appropriately for what a majority of listeners would use for playback.

I'm going to record our local Welsh MVC for a CD over the next few months so I need to get some mixing practice in !!!!!!

Sounds great, Robin!  I've been playing this one on a little octave dulcimer, but I learned it from a clawhammer banjo recording.
