Absolutely beautiful, Eli! It’s very difficult to get all those moving parts sounding right.

Great work Eli! I recorded this song during the lockdown playing with myself on banjo Viola cello and flute in my garden... and I was lucky to have some birds helping me!

Very nice. I had never ever heard this done on banjo until I tackled it many months ago and posted it here (after years of meaning to get around to it). I also posted my tab for free here on BHO. Unfortunately, my Mac fried so I've been shut down on video production for almost a year, otherwise I'd have posted a video too. This song lends itself to banjo in open G tuning quite well!

That was some really fine picking, Eli!  I love your arrangement, you capture the deep feeling of Paul McCartney's contemplative composition and the wonderful guitar playing he uses to back it up.  Maybe twenty years ago, thirty years after he wrote it, McCartney told an American DJ that he composed and recorded the song to commemorate the American civil rights movement.
