Hey John, Iv'e always loved that tune and Dan does a great job. You can feel some of the power of that banjo -special, special banjo! I played through finger style guitar with it and it sounded so good, I wish I'd known to have Dan play that the last time at your house, we could have really gotten into it. Aloha, PH

Absolutely great. Had to listen about 20 times in a row. Now I know it is not that difficult of a tune and if I worked at it for a while (longer at my stage of the game) I could get it but do you know of anyone who has this tabbed out ? Does anyone know ?

Just listened for the umpteenth time. This is one of my all-time favorites.

This is absolutely beautiful. I wish I could say it better, but I simply don't have the words.
