Well Really! Joe Morley's Minor Jig... like you ain't seen before!

I spotted this piece of Classic Banjo on Youtube.

Who said that you can't play "Classic Style" with steel strings on a bluegrass banjo played using your fingernails?????

Really great. I love it :-)

Those three guys are probably at least cousins, don't you think? That Bass Banjo needs a head change and some action work, too slappy. ;-) Remind me to dig out my Stelling and see if I can slice cheese on the strings.

I enjoyed that. Thanks!

Really enjoyed this video. He looks familiar but I can't recall where I've seen him before - possibly the Titanic String Band? I also play with steel strings, mainly because converting my banjo to nylgut strings was a failure. The tailpiece cut my first string and I couldn't figure out a way to attach the 5th string. Also, I only have the one banjo and teach a few beginners who are looking to learn bluegrass.

I think it would be logistically difficult for Marco to be in the Titanic String Band, unless the Titanic actually made the voyage and landed in the US.

Titanic String Band was Peter Labau & Co. Posted videos nearly 10 yrs ago...

A quick google search shows that the subject of the OP resides across the pond.
