I really like this tune/song. I first heard it sung by Jim Reeves in his silky style and loved playing it since. This is in G and maybe a little up tempo for a tragic tale but I like it that way for some reason..!

Are you singing and playing at same time? Either way, sounds good.

Thanks Davidus, yes, that's me in one take, no mixing hear I'm afraid to say. I attempted this one at the club last Wednesday and it was the first time they'd heard me singing, I must admit, it detracted from the nerves of just playing a bit..!

Best wishes, David.....

Nicely done, and a good song. Nice rolling upbeat banjo with a laid back vocal.

Thanks Darryl, I really appreciate it, I'll never be in your league but we can only try..!!

I've always thought this is an under played tune, never heard anyone else tackle it bar James Reeves and me for some reason.. Be good to hear some of you pro's have a go one day..?

You have a kind of understated style of singing and playing, which really comes across.

Thanks Paul..!

You must remember when Jim Reeves was smoothing this kind of song out one after another. No one seems to want to croon these days which I think is real shame and loss, there must still be an audience out there for this type of tune.

Best wishes...David

Nice job David. It's nice to hear you can do the singing and playing simultaneously. I have no problem doing it when guitar picking but just the opposite when playing the banjo. When I submit something here on which I sing there are two merged tracks.

Thanks Rick, I do a sort of subconscious picking behind the singing, the odd melody note and a sprinkling of others around each chord. I've never sat down and worked out a backing to a tune, maybe I should one day. I think your music is great Rick, best wishes....David

Bluegrass songs often have a special feature. They combine tragic lyrics with a pleasant ,fancy melody. You handle that in a perfect way.

Thanks Jef, it would be really something to hear a quality player like you do one of my tunes..!
