Here is my 30 second attempt at a break for "Honey, You Don't Know My Mind."  It was played on my Hatfield Buck Creek and recorded with my Iphone.  I'm also using my new Little Maggie German Nickel Silver finger picks.

Brian:  Nice clip.  Your message caught my attention because I just also learned You Don't Know My Mind.  Its a neat song and I wonder why its not more popular.  I have a lot of recorded music, and the only place I could find it is on the first Nitty Gritty Dirt Band Circle album, I believe by Jimmy Martin.  Its an interesting song in that the chords in the break and the chords in the melody are a bit different.

I also noticed your post because I am about to become a Hatfield owner/player.

Thank you gentlemen.  I appreciate the comments.  I agree with you Wayne that it is a really good classic song.  The first time I heard it was about 6 months ago and I was hooked.  There's something about the part where you play around on the 4th string that I love.  I've heard JD Crowe do it on some youtube videos but the one that made my jaw drop was one where Jim Mills was jamming with a couple of other guys at some sort of event at a Huber booth.  The song is great for working on tone and backup as well.  Here's the Jim Mills' clip:

Brian:  Thanks for pointing out that video.  By the way, You should look into getting the circle album if you don't have it - this is an incredible collection of foundational bluegrass music:

This is what hooked me on bluegrass back in the 1970's!
