Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

This tune is from a later version of Wry Whiskey, with Richie Chaisson playing reso-guitar, and Gene Ketelhohn playing guitar. Tom Speth is on bass, and I am playing my semi-fretless Paramount, in open D tuning. We were playing on stage somewhere, around 1999, I would guess, but I don't remember where.

Every Song is a Treat Don! 

This is extremely clean for a live perfomance. 

Another Great Song Don!

You know I recently played my first rag and I have had a great time playing the few rags I have learned since.  You mentioned to me that it could become addicting!  Yours is really fun to listen to, thanks for posting.

Great tune and great performance, Don.  That banjo sounds great,  and your playing really captures the spirit of the tune.

I can't find the words to express the awe that I am in right now. Great old time sound that I could listen to all day.

We want more like that for sure. Great job by everone of you. Thanks so much for sharing these fine tunes.
