What a nice little tune. I will listen again :-)

I have to ask... what software are you using to create your videos?  Duets, sextets seem no trouble to you. I guess the headphone play a great part !!!

Thanks for posting

I think it's my favorite (so far) out of the Ellis "Turner's 60 breakdowns jigs & hornpipes" book!

The software I'm using is an app for iOS and Android called 'Acapella' (https://www.mixcord.co/partners/acapella.html) which makes multi-tracking these things pretty easy. The free version lets you record up to one minute, then there's a monthly or annual subscription option that gives you longer tracks and higher quality audio/video.  It also has a built-in collaboration feature, so multiple people can actually contribute to the same project.  It's a great way to bring out some of those second banjo parts that don't get much love (but often add very nice depth to a piece!)

I'm "Arcanebanjo" on Acapella; if anyone wants to help stage a classic banjo invasion over there, look me up and invite me to a collaboration!

Hey Andy, I can sight read any of those 2nd banjo parts (hint hint).

I'll offer a Cello Banjo part...if somebody can teach me how to use the app. I downloaded it (Android) but haven't been able to make head nor tails out of it.
