Here's a live version of the title tune from my first CD for Rounder. This was recorded at the Freight and Salvage Coffeehouse in Berkeley, California on November 3, 2003. Band members are Jim Hurst on guitar, Ron Stewart on fiddle, Roland White on mandolin, Missy Raines on bass and yours truly on banjo. This version is a bit slower than the Rounder CD version and makes for an interesting comparison. The banjo is in Dm tuning on this tune - a D F A D. I hope you enjoy!

What a gift for you to share your music "online" here. Thanks, Bill. I first heard Jim and Missy some years ago at NashCamp. You sure work with good folks.

Thanks Jeff and thanks Unplugged for these positive comments. If you're interested in purchasing the "Bill Evans Plays Banjo" CD, please check out what's available on my web store at www.nativeandfine.com (click on the "Store" link to access the items available - CDs, my two AcuTab instructional DVDs, t-shirts and more). There's no tax and reasonable shipping rates and the artist earns a great deal more money when you buy direct. Many thanks again! Sincerely, Bill Evans

Wow Carter, Many, many thanks. This is especially encouraging to me because this is a live track. I do think a lot about tone - as I get older, it becomes more and more important. You've made my day! Sincerely, Bill

Is just has that pop and ring to it, sooooo punchy, just the right decay. I won't go into too much detail, but that's it!

Is that your 75? If it's not something you want to discuss in public message me privately.

I'm playing a REAL good banjo too! I'm very lucky to have it.

Well you deserve it man, you're a master at the 5 string and most of that tone comes from those 3 fingers you got right there!

I always love songs in that range of modal and Dmin, always what I refer to as the kick a$$ range.
