Enjoy..A wonderful job of writing here..The lyrics are worth looking at..Yip Harburg wrote them... as well as, "Somewhere over the Rainbow",
"It's only a Paper Moon"..plus Broadway plays..The banjo played is an Ome Silver Monarch. What is interesting here is the forth bar of the bridge..(on the word dum) the music is written with a C7th bass with a Bbm6 on top; a C against a Db.. Really sets the mood.
Thank you Craig! That was very beautiful and has sort of a dark melancholic edge to it that I enjoyed. I’ll have to see if I can work that one out.
Thanks Chad Just to say i played a lot of banjo in Portland..some years ago..
Very satisfying, Craig. Well done.

Omeboy and Don, thanks so much. Eddy passed before i came to the forum.
Eddy was not only a great player and teacher but a rich repository of jazz music. So many musicians he influenced.
i often think about ( having watched his videos) Eddy and his neighborhood in New York City..Eddy sitting with Tenor in hand, in front of that door..Behind Carniege Hall. Whoo!
