Havin' a bit of fun, jammin' along with Ricky Nelsons back up band, from 1963. ….. ''Fools Rush In '' was his biggest hit. ....... Don.

Hi Don, Lovely tune, A tune does not have to be played full force so to speak in order for it to be a lovely piece. You did a nice job on this one using the banjo in a simple but very effective style to present this song. Love it!

Oddly enough, the image it calls to MY mind is not Ricky Nelson, but the OTHER Ricky from those good old tv days:
The bouncy  (almost mambo) rhythm seems like something from Ricky Ricardo, and his Cuban band.

Thanks a lot Steve and Mike.

 Yes Steve, I think banjo solos should be handled with kid gloves at times.  As Louis once said, '' it's not all about the notes we play ..... but the ones we leave out!.'' ....... Don.
