Chris..........Novice, naw, you are way behind that......great picking. Bet you have listened to Huber on the Team Flathead cd, I hear the approach in your rendition. NICE WORK.

Thanks to all of you guys for your kind words and constuctive critisim. Its encouragement indeed to be praised so highly by players of your calibre.
Dave I had been asked by the guys in the band to get to work on this one. I had heard a few melodic versions, that I have to say left me a little "cold", but i'd never heard anyone do it in straight scruggs style. I felt that the melody could be interpreted nicely within the scruggs style that I love to play and hear.
I had worked up a version by myself that wasn't to dis-similar to steve's version on the Team Flat-head CD although I hadn't heard steve's version yet. I found a short clip on the Huber website of Steve playing this version presumably to market the Team Flathead CD. I found that numerous inflaections he had made, left the melody momentarily to make the most of that driving forward roll and I liked the way that made the tune feel. I tried to incorporate that feel into my vesion as much as possible. Im glad you can hear that in it!
