Great job! Especially for only having been at this for about a year! Banjo sounds good, too.

Sounds very good. The only advice I would offer is that you work on tapping your foot along with the playing and singing. Your timing drifts on and off a little bit.

I agree with the others; and you have a pleasant sounding voice, too.

Thanks everyone.It's great to get some positive feedback.As I explained I'm in a bit of a vacuum geographically speaking.Thanks for the tip Richard.I can and sometimes do tap my foot but I'll make sure to always do it in future.About halfway through this recording I started tapping my foot...that's probably when it drifted on.Good tip.Cheers.

All the best,

Where's Willy? But that's only a small thing. I can never figure out why he is walking by anyway.

I like it! Nice and springy/ plucky sound you got going there!

Played with feeling in an old-timey way. How about some more posts? After four years there's probably lots you can share.

Love the dynamics and ornamentations -- sounds like tons of drop thumb. Nice vocals as well. I'm gonna listen to this one for awhile!
