I exported from Notion into presonus to capture to notes for the VST instruments. I tried to pay attention to where the correct placement would be for them if you were viewing.  Not sure I got that right.  And the Cello may be be too low.  It might be more in the bass range.  Dunno...Cello players can chime in.  Is on the slow side at 120BPM.

This video is me playing along on Tenor Banjo, 2 fiddle tracks and a guitar.  I tried some different things such as backing WAY back from the mics.  About 6 feet or so.  Also use the two mics in a stereo setup even though they aren't a matched pair and even different styles.  One is a ribbon the other a large condenser type.  Im using a preamp on the ribbon to get the volume up.  Cheesey video footage is from tonight walking the dogs.  Still searching for the bigfoots. 



Here is the backing track if you want to play along.  It has some swing to it and I may not have got the traditional feel so listen to some authentic versions to get the true feeling of the tune.  You can go to the session.org and find a version in G (Ador I think more specifically) and it should work.  Had fun making this hope you like it.
