Midnight on the Water is a beautiful old cross-tuned fiddle waltz. It was written by Luke Thomasson, Benny Thomasson's Grandfather. It is so simple and beautiful and here is my shot at playing it. Didn't know what to put as "playing style" but it's 3 fingers style without picks. Hope you like this one

I think the playing is called "Sanders style," and a fine way of playing, too. Very elegantly done, true to the music, with no needless fussing that can often mess up a nice waltz.

This is really beautiful Mark. Of course I love the bare fingers. And I think the phrasing and dynamics are wonderful. I keep a CD of Banjo performances I like to hear time and time again. This one is going on it! "Sanders Style" OK, now I have learned something!
