Thanks, Paul.  When I posted this on Facebook, a friend of mine took it upon himself to come up with some accompaniment which is quite lovely:

Great,  true "Classic Banjo" sound.

Love it.  If we  can get you to move on a few decades and play some tunes with a bit of syncopation they will spring to life with that nice sounding banjo.

There is a challenge for you!!   ;-))

Thank you, Ian! As it happens I've been working on several "newer" tunes as part of an EP recording project, though on the audio side of things I confess to splicing the best parts of multiple takes together - capturing clean start-to-finish performances on video is the perennial challenge!
