That looks and sounds great.  Good playing, Jim.  You sure know a lot of good old timey inster mentals.  I am with Bob on the claw hammer brain and finger disconnect.  But I still try a bit.

Very nice instrument and playing Jim!  Always wanted to learn clawhammer style but my brain and fingers  wouldn't cooperate.  It's a pleasure to see and hear someone else who can.  Thanks for sharing.
