River Clyde Farewell ... original tune.

Movin' On ... a cover of a tune composed by Canadian C&W performer, Hank Snow. I've turned this country tune in to a Rock & Roll tune ... poor ol' Hank

In Movin' On, I'm playing the banjo with a Sitar fingerpick called a "mizrab". As far as I know I'm the only banjoist who does this ... I've pioneered the technique. I got the idea about 35 years ago from George Harrison who was trying it out on his guitar. He was on The David Frost show with Ravi Shankar talking about it.

I like to play Rock & Roll like it's a '57 Buick, slippin' and slidin' down a greasy road at midnight
