Nice melody. Dave Guard of the Kingston Trio would have love this. Your playing on this sort of reminds me of his playing.

Nice, crisp picking, Bill.  Double C is great for picking minor and Dorian tunes, but most of the appalachian Dorian tunes are in A, so you don't hear it done much. Really sweet.
