A very lush, sweet, version. I love to hear a brush on the banjo. So much depth of tone.

I have listened to this many times before, but today I was working and listening to the BHO Jukebox in the background and this track came on. So I wanted to say again how much I enjoy this cut and what great playing Ric!
Best Wishes,

Thanks guys. Much appreciated. I've recently worked out a new version played fingerstyle (not Scruggs). It has a different feel. I've asceending bass lines and it has a more open, resonant kind of sound. It will be on the CD when I eventually finish it.

What a great piece of playing. Your rhythm is locked in so solid, it's fantastic. Glad you're putting a version on that CD that I'm going to buy when it's out.

I loved this! After 30 years playing scruggs style, I've just caught the clawhammer bug..... This absolutely exem[plifies the melodic style & tone I'm hoping to achieve (eventually).

Thanks very much Derek! CH is definitely infectious! This is a really fun tune to play. I've also posted a fingerstyle version (if you're interested).
