    Thanks Ryan this is very helpful. I’m just starting to learn different backup techniques and sometimes it’s hard to decide what Earl is playing while Lester is singing. This gives me a backup plan!

    Thanks Ryan, very good stuff for any player who plays with others…. Your tutorial is not showy as too many banjo players tend to be.

    Thanks for the tips which should help me rise a little from my very basic/boring back up technique and venture up the banjo neck.
