Heck, I like it even though it's not usually the kind of stuff I like. Not really into Bluegrass or banjos, but what I like about this is that you just hear a lone stark banjo that stands by itself as an emotional instrument. Very much like John Fahey's work, it has its own enigmatic quality.

Thanks, Lawrence.

The Fahey connection comes to most people who know his work, mostly because he was a big influence about the same time I started taking my playing a little more seriously*

*That's a topic for much debate... I know I'm woefully deficient, still, in terms of knowing my way around the scales, for example... I have a great ear and can sing on key but I get dyslexic on the fretboard when actual notation is called for. Never was very good at forming chords.
