 2 caveats to start,  When I went to record last nite , I realized I had learned this off Carson Hudsons cd,  it is different than the way Tim plays it. Carsons is a simplier arrangement.  I got a Joel Hooks thimble yesterday ,,and like it!  I was going to use it, but after a few trys I realized I wasn't comfortable enough with it yet.

sorry about the performance here, Ill do better next time.

Steve - Your banjo has such a soft tone. I love it! And, where can I find this tune? Is it available in one of the tutors on Tim's site?

thanks, It is in Tims book,  I picked it up by ear on the carson Hudson Old virginney cd,,,, I like the guys work,its basic minsterel entertainment. I can be ordered easily ,, I know of no tabs for it,, but its easy to figure out by ear.

Tims playing is much more virtuiostic sp? :(

virtouiostic,,, what I mean is Tim is a virtuioso,  Ive probably still spelled that wrong,

Great job, Steve!  And your banjo has a nice, mellow tone.

You make it seem so easy... ;)
