Sounds like shades of Half Shaved... is it the same tune by a different name?

Yeah, Ken, you're right, as always a smart fellow. Sure you're not from Smartsville? Wade Ward used the same tuning: eCGCD and it sure sounds the same. He was from Virginia. The Hammons were from West Virginia. I'll do some more research on this.

I knew you'd be on it in a flash Janet... and no... you're definitely the smart one:-)

Or 'Hollyding'? They are really similar to my inexperienced ear and the way it repeats that little triple and resolves to the low C reminded me of it. But different. Janet, your playing is always so pleasant. Thanks for posting these.
