That's a lovely rich sounding banjo, and a haunting melody line to boot Rick, good on you!. .... Don.

Wonder what happened on Lemon Creek...Your time has your own hallmark style. Very nice and rather dramatic.

Thanks Janet. Lemon Creek is a stream on Staten Island where I grew up. My dad and brother and uncles and I used to go crabbing there when I was a kid. I don't know what prompted me to use this title. Maybe it just sounded like a tune that needed a creek in its name. :>)

Late to the party brother Rick, but that is a fantastic tune...one of many you have composed! That “modal” tuning lends some ambiguity...minor or bluesy...either way, killer performance!

You are too kind Greg. Thanks much.

Very cool Rick! - I love the modal sound, and it always seems to conjure up murder and mayhem. I have written a few in this tonality and your original sort of inspires me to try and write another...
