Favorite Bands/Musicians:
Earl, Don, Ralph, JD, Jim Reed, Jim Mills. I like the "old stuff" and older styles. I admire many of today's younger "progressive" artists, but I have always enjoyed collecting records from the 1920s through to the early 1960s. That fifty year period of American music is my favorite: Bluegrass, Old Time, Blues, Hokum, Rags, Swing, Hillbilly, Country, & Rockabilly. That's for me!

A fine rendition, Tom. You have nailed the whimsical nature of this tune, perfectly.

I dunno... There's something Freudian about a guy who plays both a huge, extended-neck theorbo -- and a dinky little 17-fret tenor....


Great job, and unique "take" on the tune. It's one of my favorites!
