Advanced banjo camper Gabe from Massachusetts writes:
My band's CD is coming out soon. They took almost all of the banjo back-up out, but I think it sounds good.
[How come your backup was mixed low?]
I have heard some of the music that the people who engineered our CD did (including their own band's CD) and the tracks with banjo had almost no banjo except for the breaks. I also didn't know the material that well (none of us did). The fiddler in the band wanted to make the CD to help him get into schools, so the band got together a week before recording and we started a whole bunch of new material, a lot of it was stuff that I had never played before. I think I would have done a lot better if we had been able to rehearse more.
