Ragging the Scale - Van Eps Banjo Orchestra

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sZYaoR-h6F8

A different version of Ragging the Scale than the one in the Original Recordings library marked as Van Eps Banjo Orchestra.  I wonder who the other musicians were - sounds like plectrum or tenor banjo.

"The "Classic Banjo" strings are great. The gut strings are different. I have the CE Classic mediums on all my banjos now. I think they sound great, and I have had no feathering or breaking issues."
