Hey Guys, 

Here's a tune I wrote almost a year ago. 'Homesick Blues' 

The video features the amazing Brad Shigeta on trombone who used to play in the Ellington Orchestra, with Illinois Jacquet as well as so many other great musicians. Jen Hodge on double bass, Chris O'Dea on alto saxophone and me on Tenor Banjo. 

My group is called The Milk Crate Bandits and you can find more of the music here https://www.milkcratebandits.com/music/

I'm playing a wonderful Pietsch 'Eddy Davis Special' tenor. Hope you guys enjoy the video and tune!

Hey Jack, I sure do like those changes going up in there. Very nice my friend and a great little arrangement -- I like the band. You sound great on that Banjo. It was made for you. Eddy "A Minstrel"

Thanks so much guys! I'm quite proud of this one as a composition and really glad everyone liked it! 

Eddy I'll attach a chart for you and anyone who wants to see the chords or even have a go playing it. 

Emiel it's a beautiful Pietsch Banjo custom made for Eddy Davis.
