I really enjoy playing waltzes on the banjo. The tempo is friendly and there's time to listen and enjoy while you play. This is played on my 1890's Bay State banjo.

Everytime I hear you play this, it lifts my spirit.  I've never heard anybody play a tune with such understanding. 

Wonderful job.

You'd think this waltz was written for banjo, the nice way you play it.  Excellent job, great touch!

I'd like to know what maroon didn't give you 5 stars on this!  If I could vote twice (to offset his/her ignorance), I would!

Love this piece and the way you play it!

What can I say in the company of someone like Chip Arnold and Don Borchelt and the rest of these fine people( that ACTUALY PLAY the banjo!) that would mean anything but, you David along with Chip, Don and several others have inspired me to learn to play the banjo.
Every time I hear this piece played by you I am re-inspired.
Thank you ever so much for this one and, all of your work as well.
