**UPDATE** I guess there are a bunch of videos from them on youtube still.
Right hand technique:
I play on and off with Scott - he has a few bluegrass lessons on YouTube - he's a badass bluegrass player:

Here's a fun jam at Wayne Henderson famous Christmas party Scott's playing with the Kruger Brothers a cool group from Switzerland - the guy on banjo is pretty ridiculous. I didn't play on this tune. We played some Django tunes in this kitchen jam and a couple of Dead tunes - Jens (the banjo player) plays a pretty sick Deal. This is a great party, all kinds of awesome pickers show up every year - Doc Watson makes an appearance every couple of years.
