Today was the first day this year when it was warm enough here in Louisville for me to take my banjo out at lunch to play/practice. Sixty-five degrees and partly sunny. I usually go to the Belvedere next to the Galt House and find an out-of-the-way spot. Today I decided to sit on a bench at a trolley stop on Main Street. There was frequent traffic noise, but I was playing more for myself than anyone else anyway.
The day was so pleasant that lots of folks were outside at lunch time.
I got a chance to practice 3 tunes in open D tuning that I have learned: Chris Coole's 'Copper Run', Paul Brown's 'Last Cold Whiskey' and 'Peachbottom Creek'. I need to learn a few more tunes in this tuning so I will use it more.
I'm looking forward to more days like this.

Ain't it fun? I do the same when I get a long lunch on Mondays.
I have some backup tracks on a CD, I go to my church parking lot nearby, and open the car doors, and pick with the midi tracks!

Aww, you're braggin'... both in terms of weather and tunes!
Actually, I'm jealous (although it IS above freezing here today).
