Yeh, love that riff.

Also playing House of Pain. Such atmosphere in the first half and then it really swings in the end section. Classic EVH.

But it's not really a banjo is it. Deering?
Beyond a critical point within a finite space, freedom diminishes as numbers increase. This is as true of humans as it is of gas molecules in a sealed flask. The human question is not how many can possibly survive within the system, but what kind of existence is possible for those who so survive.

6 String Banjitar/Ganjo. A gift from a friend (I suspect his wife wanted it out of the house ;-) )
