You did an excellent job with this. I really like your playing and your version of this tune.

This proves beyond reasonable doubt that Bonaparte's Retreat must be played fretless to be truly realized. This old tune is full of quick little musical wisecracks, and you have nailed the feeling of it perfectly. A fine performance.

The banjo... as a singing voice...
With all its emotion.
