I love this tune - this is an attempt at Sean Ray's version of it. I know there is a lot of work needed but I AM working on it. The up-the-neck break is really difficult for me, but I'll get there! Need a good ending to finish it off properly - any help would be much appreciated.

It sounds pretty good to my clawhammered ears!

I can't believe that you only started playing last year.

Nice tune, it really is, and it sounds challenging to learn. What tuning are you in? I can imagine some modal chordal strum slowly across the strings at the end...

Lovely Deb's :-) Have you listened to any of Tony Ellis's stuff. I think you would like it.

Many thanks everyone, your comments are really appreciated.

muzzlehatch, yes, I started playing at the end of March last year.

Janet, it's just in standard G tuning.

Just checked out Tony Ellis on YouTube Eddie, some great stuff.

Thanks everyone :-)
