After watching a Giants baseball pennant win I wrote this tune as they celebrated. They're a downhome team to root for--with not a single hero, but all shining stars.

Janet, this is beautiful. I mean really beautiful. I think this is destined to be very popular and deserves some lyrics. However, my audio cut out in the bottom of the ninth so I did not get to hear the end.

So pretty. Great tune, great playing!

... 'cept I'm rooting for the Royals.

Thanks much. I enjoy playing it in this tuning. Todd, the Giants seem bound to win this first game of the World Series. My relatives in Kansas City will hope it turns out otherwise.

Thanks! It takes a bit of being "banjo crazy," as Paul Roberts says in his banjocrazy website, and you're "cocoloco." (Are you crazy about chocolate?) Paul and Jim Reed are the ones who encourage and inspire original compositions.

This tune lives me the feel of an Irish O'Carolan harptune. Nice composed, well played on a tremendous sounding banjo!

Thanks, Gerard. You know I love O'Carolan music!
