Monday music: Sleepy Man Banjo Boys play a FAST Clinch Mountain Backstep

Here are a few boys who, I think, do not spend all their spare time on video games and cartoons.


All good, but the boy on the bed may be the star. Others have a rough time keeping up with him.

Peripheral coolness: love the furniture, I think we have that bear... and don't miss the Millennium Falcon!

Get OUT! That is UNBELIEVABLE!

Love, love, love it! Those boys look like they are really having fun, too. My 8-year-old mandolin player is going to like watching this. And for the record, they probably are also good at video games. But I don't think they have bluegrass for Wii, yet. And who wants to wait their turn to play a video game when they can all play together (as well as take turns soloing) and entertain the whole family? Thanks for this cheerful start to a rough Monday morning.

I thought the guys playing the string instruments did a great job. The guy playing the percussion instrument was good, but it’s his job to keep the band in tempo! ;-)

Loved the zoom in to the shirt displaying the logo for the finest guitar factory in the world.

Wow! Very impressive.

Daryl said...

Loved THAT!

The boy on the bed had an unfair advantage: he was playing the banjo. Which is to say, he had the best instrument.

Well...that was discouraging (not really). I've just started working on a version of CMB on the banjo; I can see now that I have a ways to go. Dan, thanks for just one more reminder that you should learn to play when you're young! 'Preciate it!

I sympathize.

My version of that regret would be not prodding my kids into musical efforts at a younger age - you know, when there's more brain-room.

Mike Westfall said...

Well, that was awesome!

I love that "O I'm so exhausted" look on that banjo boy's face! :)

(This is, of course, in addition to all three's performances!)

The good news? I could do that, and better, in my sleep!

The bad news? that's the ONLY place where I could do it! ;-)

Nice job, kids, very well done!
