VancePants wrote Tune for Janet today. I'm so excited I had to try it already. He plays it 2-finger picking in his beautiful way and I'm attempting it clawhammer style. The rhythm feels Baltic to me. You'd think it's crooked, but it's not. It would be the kind of dance tune the people have to do some quick little syncopated steps all together and proceed -- I can picture it! But don't ask me to try that....Thanks so much, Ken, dedicating a tune to me. That's a keepsake to always treasure, especially right here on BHO where we interact and encourage each other on our musical journeys.

Really nice interpretation of an already cool tune. How fitting that you two great people are paying tribute to each other. Just a welcoming place to “hang out” and talk shop!

Thanks, Greg. Learning Ken’s tune is an education in rhythm and syncopated melody. It’s an honor and joy to have inspired a tune.

Just lovely Janet... fits ya to a proverbial "T". Proud to have you play it... gives the tune some gravitas!
