John, I agree with Dave's MTA solo. When I watched George's DVD, I didn't believe how easy it actually was compared to what what I had been doing for fifty years. I think the problem for me was I was trying to do it ala John Stewart, who was a little more off the wall with some of his playing. And I mean that in a good sense!
: George discusses "fake frailing" in his instructional DVD about how to play
: banjo the way he does with the Trio. It's worth a look-see, for anyone who hasn't
: already had one. He discusses techniques that he utilizes in several other songs,
: as well. I found the information on "MTA" especially helpful. In fact,
: once he illustrated how to play Dave's instrumental interlude, I felt like an idiot,
: for the technique then seemed VERY obvious.
