Hey, who couldn't use another video of Rawhide. Ronnie McCoury on this one playing some really wild licks and flat out smoking on the Loar

Cool & pretty insane alright!!-- what is the high note he gets there on his second break? -- looks like 12th fret on the E-course? Anyway for a bit there I was thinking I could say the only reason I can't play it just as well is that I have a Sam Bush model -- but I guess I can't use that excuse. So back to the old tried and true deficit of talent excuse I guess. :crying:

I admire Ronnie for continuing to pick this number regularly, paying tribute to the composer. At one point in this performance, the band's rhythm plods a bit.

Outrageous! The speed, clean technique and clarity on those high notes in the second break is just off the hook! What a player.
I am definitely Not Worthy!

Yep. Though in all fairness, for Rawhide to sound "right" at speed, the rhythm has to be pretty much perfect - every instrument - and that is a LOT easier to say than it is to do consistently. If there is any margin for error, it would be just slightly ahead of the beat (where Kentucky Thunder lives).

I found it interesting that Del does his rhythm brushes on 1 & 3, right along with the bass fiddle, where Bryan Sutton picks bass notes on 1 & 3 and does his rhythm brushes on 2 & 4. Sutton (my opinion) deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Rice for his inhuman rhythm chops, feel and touch.

Alan, I also thought that when the banjo came in to take his break that the timing was rough, I didn`t dare post it because I didn`t want to sound negative to such a great picker and band and have people jump on me.....At least there is three of us that agree on that point.....Willie
