thanks for listening, fellas. I tried to put these in perspective for myself in this post (http://www.donegone.net/?p=356). Recording these three was a very interesting experience. For  me, anyway! :)

That is really nice, Frank.  Really pretty singing, and your banjo really shines in that key with that approach.  Sort of a different sort of cross-note tuning, sort of like the C and D cross each other.  Thanks for that.
All best,
John

thanks! I'm just crazy about that banjo! for whatever reason, I didn't want to try too hard to harmonize the song. I love the way sam collins does what he does with the guitar, but felt that reproducing that on the banjo wouldn't be particularly satisfying to me.

In the end, I kinda let the tuning do the heavy lifting, so it would be fair to say that I didn't harmonize the song at all!

Uncle Bud,

It was done by Matthias Lehmann. He's posted several other portraits on Tumblr; mostly of different musicians and all of them are just as cool.

Here's a link to his page:
