This is another recording of the Wry Whiskey amalgamation with Richie Chaisson on resophonic guitar and the late Gene Ketelhohn on guitar, recorded in early 1999. I am playing my semi-fretless Paramount in open D tuning.

 Best version I've heard where 5 string banjo takes the lead.

Don, your playing is always beautiful but this one takes the cake. Clear and clean as crystal.

That's a really nice version of one of my favorite songs. As much as I like it, I have yet learned to play it. You make a difficult song sound so easy and smooth. Thanks

Very nice indeed but I'm a fool for a waltz.

Ashoken Farewell is one of my favorite tunes, especially when played on the banjo, and your arrangement is just beautiful.  Would you be willing to send me a tab of your version or point me to a good tab of it from another source?  Thanks for your post.

And I thought I was the only banjo picker who played this tune LOL. Very nicely done. It's cool too because I had been corresponding with Richie about something else entirely, and then stumbled into this. Cool cool cool.
