I'm not on here much anymore but I thought there might be some interest in this classic tune by Bird - played on the "other 4 string"

Laurence,

Every time I hear you play a jazz piece, I know why they put the word "WOW" in the dictionary.  Your occasional and very welcome contributions to this corner of the website invariably projects it into a higher, faster orbit than its previously known. For those who might have missed your banjo version of Yardbird Suite, I'd like to post the link here. Both versions are a tour de force thru the frets.  Thanks for resetting the thermostat!   https://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=21052&archived=

Thanks so much Paul for those very kind words - and for posting the link! I think I played some of the same licks, but even Bird had his favorites...

I'm always bowled over by the generous responses on this particular 4 string forum - very much appreciated!

Here's a video of this Parker's tune I made some years ago, I didn't even rimeber it!
It's very different since it is arranged in chord melody style...
