Smoky and the Bandit ... total goofball movie but I loved it nana ... especially Jackie Gleason as Buford T. Justice Very Happy ... but what really got my attention was when Jerry Reed started to kick this one out.

The backing track was made with a bit of software called Band In A Box (a.k.a. BIAB).

Cheers,
Ian

"pomegranate martini recipe" ... hmmm ... I'm a little more partial to a good single malt whiskey myself ...

Isan, was it you who coined the phrase "barbarian iconoclasts of the frozen northland" Very Happy

Hi Ian,

I just wanted to say how very much I enjoyed, and was impressed by, your excellent banjo picking. Thanks so much for sharing this with all of us.

Thanks very much Laura. About ten years back I had what Billy Connolly likes to refer to as an "F this moment from God" and decided that rather than working in medicine and writing computer code I would "Unleash the Kraken!!!" ... well really, unleash the banjo . Trying to become a pro musician who actually makes a living at it at my age is a bit of a challenge Shocked

Here's my latest. Sometimes you meet the most interesting banjo pickers on the path

Ian, that's lovely.

Thank you for posting your playing.

By the way, is that a Dan Fogelberg T-shirt you're wearing?
