solo Twang: The Road from Thursday -- banjo and dulcimer

An original piece for banjo and dulcimer. For the music-heads out there: the banjo is tuned DGBD (my yardsale banjo doesn't have a drone string); the dulcimer is tuned DGD. That's a C-harp I'm playing. The bass is my electric dulcimer (GDD) through Electro-Harmonix HOG. The bit of percussion at the end is cajon.

I do this one in a slightly different arrangement live with the band sometimes, playing banjo and harmonica.
