Nice! I reckon you’ve dabbled in about every usable tuning...this one has a nice ring to it. Spritely melody (although I’m still trying to make the association to dew ; ) ), and fine pickin’!

Soundin' slippery sweet there Rick ...... this'd also suit a good banjo lesson on slides and hammer ons to boot!, ..... good to the last wee drop. ...... Don.

Thanks Greg. Couldn't really come up with a good title but I thought the initial notes maybe indicated falling rain but I didn't like that for a title so despite the fact that dewdrops just form and don't fall, I used it. Hey Don, you're spot on with the hammers and slides comment; thanks for the listen.

I tried to imagine the tune just by reading its title. I couldn’t quite do it, but the real thing did not let me down. Interesting that dead man’s tuning can produce something so alive

Thanks Janet. I'll have to admit I probably missed on the title. Glad to hear that the tune itself fared better. I like your "interesting" observation.
