I should also mention that half way through recording this I thought to myself "this song works so well on banjo, can't believe it's never been done before!" so I searched it and sure enough there's already a much better version then mine on YouTube. Steve'n'Seagulls beat me to it. Cheers fellas!
The purple picks I use were given to me by Purple Plectrums
