Dr. Hekok Jig

"Haven't heard that version, Paul. I agree with you both ,the duo melds well with that groove; but the solo sounds like a fiddle player around a campfire. It has an edginess. A tune that really allows interpretation."

Doctor Hecock's Jig

"Yes, that is sort of what I remember. Don't get me wrong Sonny, you did a killer job on this. I just recollect my own struggle with it, and then hearing the relief of the smooth fiddle players. The same is true for almost ALL of the "back…"

Doctor Hecock's Jig

"Wes Merchant posted a link to two players, James Bryan and Carl Jones, playing Dr. Hecock's, on guitar and fiddle. They blew it away! I haven't heard any other fiddler versions. They played Kick up the Devil, too. Excellent!"

Doctor Hecock's Jig

"I wish I could remember where it came from. I thought someone put it here. Any recollections? It really had a swing to it...that sort of evades us banjoists. It's a hard tune."
