Yet another gem with just the right title! Brings back memories of some trails I've wandered in the Appalachians. Haunting melody, and very nicely played. Keep 'em coming brother Rick! Between you and Janet, I may get drawn into the dark clawhammer world : )

Appreciate that Greg. Love to hear you doing some claw. You would tear it up!

Maybe meet somewhere in between for a Dave Hum type of thing?

Dave definitely had a style all his own, but it was essentially three fingerpicking with modifications based on his physical limitations. Nobody could go wrong striving to imitate him. He was a terrific player.

The tune is indeed haunting. The recording quality is fantastic. Clear and clean...

Thanks Simon. I am just using a decades old computer stick mic plugged into the sound card going into Audacity, so I guess I have to be pleased that it comes out OK, and I'll take your word on that because you certainly have a good ear.

Hey Jimi, thanks. You've got some of that magical vibe yourself my friend.

You spun the tuning wheel and hit another jackpot. Will you compose a Happy Trails tune if you get the proper tuning? :)

Thanks Janet. That's a good thought. Some of those tunings I used could work; I'll keep it in mind.
