This is my arrangement of the flamenco tune by Ottmar Liebert. When I first heard Liebert play this on the guitar, I thought, "this should be played on a banjo!" My wife, Lynn, plays bass on this arrangement, playing the bass with a bow in the intro. and the ending of this tune. Thanks, Lynn! Irv Wright is on dobro and the late Ray Peterson is on guitar.

Thanks, Jeff.  It's a fun tune to play.  When I tell someone I am going to play a Flamenco tune on the banjo, they look at me as if I've lost my mind.  (Too late, I already have!!!)  :^D
