An original composition named after the Hangout's own Paul Roberts. He once posted an inspiring story about having young students take instruments and go off on their own to try to make music with them (as opposed to starting by having them learn the "right" way to do it). I sympathize with this approach and was moved by the story. I can't honestly claim to compose these tunes about a topic, but I can at least name them in honor of things that seem fitting. So this one is named "Hats" in honor of Paul (he has awesome hats). Recorded on a Fielding custom made Whyte Laydie tone ringed banjo, tuned something like open D.

John D says it for me, too, "best original CH tune I've heard in a long time. Instantly likeable!" I can't tell you how moved I am, Mark.

Very, very, _very_ nice tune, thank you. And I _really_ like that you dedicate this to Paul—it was his play (and smile) that convinced me to get me a banjo :-)

It's ultra-wonderful. It gives me a playful image of all my different hats--when I wear them, and why I like them. Today's hat was to keep the weeds and dust out as I weed-wacked. Yesterday's was just to keep the sun out of my eyes. What inspired you to write this and title it so, Mark?
