Joy is often balanced by melancholy, isn't it. Beautiful musical statement, Rick.

Funny, I had both feelings when I was listening to it while looking for a title. Thanks Janet.

Insightful melody. You always title your pieces perfectly. I gues the tuning would be the banjer equivalent of DADGAD on guitar, a favorite of Jimmy Page.

Thanks Greg. @stratovarious520 I think I may have briefly tried that tuning on guitar many moons ago, but mostly I use standard tuning or occasionally Drop D, which I used on my tune "Peace Notes", one in what has become an annual posting for me here during the holiday season.
