Tota Lake is one of the most beautiful places I have been. Therefore, an ideal place to make a new video with the banjo. Spanish Fandango is a very familiar tune in the old-style repertoire for banjo. My apologies with the dog lol, but you must admit that sometimes he did a good vamping with the barks.

This video is a kind of "end of season chapter". I decide to deal with some important issues in my left hand position, so I will be only working in that aspect for the following weeks and maybe months (well, all my life). Therefore, no more videos for a while.

Nice smooth performance, despite the canine accompaniment, German, and what a beautiful place to be playing too. Perhaps I should play outside here in the UK but I would need a waterproof banjo, coat, hat, scarf and some gloves.

I look forward to seeing and hearing the "new and improved" left hand.  It looks fine to me now and it seems that your long fingers will be great for those  LOOONG stretches.

Get back on site soon.

A very clean and finished performance, German. Solid beat and timing. Well done!
