old time three finger?

Not unlike my Swanee in G but a tad different.. I really like rattling this one off for some reason, usually mixed in with April Showers...!

Nice smooth picking. It's still hard to believe that you ever had any trouble at the mic. If I played as well as you I'd be at the mic as much as they'd let me!

Very kind of you gents, still a whole lot of room for improvement but that's the fun, right..? If we could all play like Earl etc, I think we'd all get bored. Nice to see a little improvement now and then though when only playing by ear, it makes me feel I'm headed in the right direction. It's a lot slower process to good results if you don't play tabbed music. I might play a tune through 20 times for any slight adjustment to it..

It's not always easy to get 3-finger picking to sound really "musical" but you do a superlative job. Thanks for posting.

Thanks Paul...!...It's all just a simplified result of not being able to get bluegrass rolls to sound anything but machine gun like so I took a few that I thought sounded melodic on their own and built the meody around them with a few slides and whatnots thrown in.

I really appreciate your comments Paul, you're a fine musician. Best wishes.....David

I am looking forward to heading into the three-finger arena after I get a little better at the Frailing. This piece makes me want to try it sooner than later.

Hi Gordon, thanks for your comment. I'm sure a quality picker like you will have no trouble at all..!

Best wishes....David

Thanks for your comment Rick, I really appreciate it. I don't play a set method, just what I've settled on over the years, so no bluegrass or oldtime just my standard that has chugged along for years, never really improving at all. Maybe I should learn tab pieces from the masters and see if I can play them in the end..!! All the best.......David
