minimix: Americana Is Beautiful.2 Schoolin' Banjos

Ah, that sweet gap between the solstice and the fourth, perfect for some good old fashioned roots music. Today we're concentrating on the banjo. At first I didn't think I'd be able to scrape together enough tunes but it didn't take long before I was having trouble paring it down to my self-imposed six. While happy with what we're left with, I'm not sure if it will have the intended effect, but should be an interesting tutorial in the multiplicities of the ole banjo. One super caveat is that I've completely ignored Mr. Fleck who now has a reservation for his own mix somewhere in the not-too-distant future.
