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!

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.

Absolutely beautiful.  Thank you for sharing your talent with us.  I love both sets of words for Greensleeves/What Chils Is This.  This is a beautiful rendition.
