The Kilties - Grimshaw - Classic fingerstyle banjo

A fun solo by Emile Grimshaw which includes the Scottish classics "Highland Laddie" and "Annie Laurie". I've only heard two recordings of this one -- one by Olly Oakley, who played the entire thing very fast and with his typical rhythmic flair, and another by Charles Mansell, who slowed down for the Annie Laurie part. I play it "Oakley style" throughout and at full speed -- even though "Annie Laurie" does sound a bit comical played fast!

Another cracker from Mike.

You have developed such crisp, yet delicate, touch in the melody and dramatic drive in the bass.

I am sure that it is not just the microphone, maybe hours/weeks/months/years of practice have something to do with it!

Here is a challenge for you Mike.. get the video working too!  ;-)
