Giant Steps was a great album. I learned a lot from it although Scruggs/Melodic style was more my thing. I don't have the album anymore, but your playing of this took me right back. Nice Job.

Very good tone! I would prefer the melody line not to jump octaves so much. I first learned this on tenor banjo in the 70's. Now your recording has encouraged me to learn it on clawhammer!

I have to learn this in D, part of a medley, I like it this way better this way though.
