Ady ("Adylew" on the BHO), a good friend of ours is undergoing treatment for cancer...her third bout with this disease. While praying for her recovery, this melody came to me. It's a song for her, so I call it "Ady's Tune." If you enjoy it, feel free to pick it or just listen to it. Either way, please think of Ady and say a prayer for her as you play it or listen to it. My wife, Lynn is on bass. I'm on rhythm guitar, lead guitar, banjo and Dobro. Thanks for giving this a listen!

This is my arrangement of the flamenco tune by Ottmar Liebert. When I first heard Liebert play this on the guitar, I thought, "this should be played on a banjo!" My wife, Lynn, plays bass on this arrangement, playing the bass with a bow in the intro. and the ending of this tune. Thanks, Lynn! Irv Wright is on dobro and the late Ray Peterson is on guitar.

This is my version of the Buck Owens' popular instrumental, "Buckaroo." I put this arrangement together in response to a request from my Banjo Hangout Buddy, "Lumpy." My favorite bass player, my wife Lynn, is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar. I hope you enjoy it, Lumpy!

Caravan redux. It may not be what Juan Tizol, Duke Ellington or even the Ventures would have expected, but it was a fun tune to do. Here is my version of the tune, "Caravan." My wife, Lynn, is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar.

Jerry Reed's popular tune from the movie, "Smokey And The Bandit." I put this arrangement together in response to an email request I received from fellow BHO member, "Furman's Student," Monty from Greenville, SC. I couldn't think of a better tune to post in remembrance of Jerry Reed and Bobby Thompson. Thanks for the inspiration, Monty! My wife, Lynn, is on bass and I'm struggling along on the banjo and guitar.

This version of the Beatles' song, "Here Comes the Sun," was inspired by Tom Adams' June 2007 column in the "Banjo Newsletter." I always enjoy his music, his articles and his selection of tunes for the "Banjo Newsletter." Thank you, Mr. Adams. My wife, Lynn, is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar.

"Hernando's Hideaway," from the 1957 musical, "The Pajama Game." Certainly not a standard banjo tune, but I think it works. ;)

This arrangement is by my good friend, Howard Anderson (aka "Handy 13" on the BHO), of Tempe, Arizona. Irv Wright is on the Dobro, the late Ray Peterson on guitar and my wife, Lynn Breen on bass. There's a little "James Bond" theme thrown in between each verse...

My Scruggs-style version of "Jerusalem Ridge." My favorite bass player (my wife, Lynn) is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar. This recording was done on a $4 p.c. microphone. LOL!

Herb Alpert's great tune from his Tijuana Brass days. I love his music! My wife, Lynn, is on bass and I'm on banjo and guitar. (No, I didn't modulate to Bb at the end...) ;^)
