Got the idea from our fiddle player, Alex Thomlinson, to work this one up for Christmas gigs. Here it is, warts & all.

Wonderful. Very elegantly done and still heartfelt. I've always been partial to the combination of banjo and finger style guitar, and this is a really nice example of how great the two can sound together.

This is great. I would not have believed that Greensleeves could sound so nice on a banjo.

O, wow, the harmonization or re-harmonization of this tune is just lovely, beyond language. What a gorgeous arrangement and natural approach. The tuning and chords are simply scumptious! And it sounds good too!

I have always played Greensleeves on my cello every Christmas season and have always wanted to do the same on my banjo. When I heard your version I was taken back. This is absolutly beautiful and I thank you for sharing your wonderful talent with us. Thank you.

One of my all time favories no matter the season. Your version is beautiful! I found myself being swept away by the melody. Thank you for sharing your gifts.
