This is a tune I made up for my second grand daughter Lily. I call it Bouncing Lily. I usually play it in double C but sometimes double D. I've made up tunes for each grand child that hopefully reflect their personalities, and Lily is an active girl! This is on an all Oregon Myrtle banjo I am just finishing up and put together to test before the final touches. Its a 25" scale, 12" x 1/2" x 3" myrtle block rim with no tone ring. The neck is extra wide with a lot of carbon fiber in it. I also loaded a few photos of the banjo in process.

I came to this page looking for a source only to find it's an original! What a beautiful tune, and a wonderful tribute to a grand daughter...
