Here's my version of the lead break played without my tab at hand, so try to find out if I was true to my own version ;) You're hearing my old work horse, the Iida 233...

This is the ending of the break, played extra slowly, because not every melody note falls on the beat. (check the tab)

This goes together with the tab in my photo albums, sub Tabs. It's a tip to the hat for Bill Keith who IMO defined Little Sadie for banjo. I never learned his arrangement but this is how I heard the tune. I think Bill played it in D where my version is in G.

The hardest part of this break, many times more difficult than off the wall stuff I made up myself. Comparable with the way the roll reverses in 'Shucking the corn' It's the sheer, mirage-like, syncopation that leaves me on the wrong foot all the time....

For some months I had a wrong file (with some wrong notes) here. Now I've replaced by the one that was supposed to be here in the first place. The tab is in my Photos/Tab section Feel free to use mp-3 and/or tab.

Got the idea for this instrumental while moving at 20mph, hanging in the corner on my Shorttrack (ice) speedskates. Nowadays I'm happy when I'm breaking the 15 mph barrier, at all.... It's in D, utilizing standard G tuning.

This one wrote itself, shortly before we recorded 'True Companions' as Heartstrings & Friends (1995). One of those friends was Theo Lissenberg, who started playing with us after an impromptu session at his home, when he showed us the A5-L mandolin that was to become mine by the end of the evening... I thought it appropriate to name it after our, then, new trio 'Skyland' The recording however still was a duo effort, Elly on bass and me taking care of the rest... The tab is in my Photo/Tab section

This is my compressed (1'13;")version of this famous song from the seventies... I knew I'd always be singing off-key when listening through headphones. Then why was I trying to record dobro that way? I have no valid answer....
