Nice, Janet - very jaunty!

Thanks, Bob. Jaunty is a great word and brings to mind the image of people hearing this tune and then strutting around with their heads poking back and forth. It really does happen.

Yes a little good one. I like the Blus`y way you the the tune.

Thanks, Torben. I'm playing out of chordal positions and sliding into them. The ending notes in a G# chord leaves me wondering what happens next. (I had to learn it for a play and Chicken Reel began every act.)

This had me grinning the whole way. Clear as a bell, cute, funny; everything you need from a chicken but the egg.

A very nice job, Janet. But dang, girl, seems like every time I turn around, you're getting a new banjo. Looks like you now have one for every day of the week, and two on Sunday. One more and you will be caught up with me.

If I sell one, I seem to get two more. And I do have seven, and they all have names--quite a happy family. I don't plan to sell any more, so I'm done. Famous last words. I don't have anything REALLY old yet....
