This little melody came to me this evening as my soul was needing some nourishment.
5-string cello banjo - tuned octave Double C, using a bone frailing pick.
Tomorrow I'll try some overdubbing.

While we are all straining to reach for extraneous notes, Paul is recording the sound track for our lives. This is wonderful, like hummingbirds dancing. The very best use of the cello banjo I've heard yet. When tomorrow gets here, I sure wouldn't add anything to it .

What a wonderful piece Paul, and such an original way to play. I like the tuning, and the voicing of the Cello.

Extremely original. I like what Don wrote "Sound track to our lives." It is wonderful. OK, now you have to tell me about this bone frailing pick and about the technique . . . is the drone accomplished by alternating thumb and finger really fast with punches thrown in for the melody? You keep the rhythm perfectly. I would believe it if you told me "I used dulcimer hammers!" It is very cool Paul!
