Sure is. Thank you to you and Mark for putting these tunes once more on the radar.

Nice job Paul, now tell me, are those James' chickens?
Comment by Paul Draper on February 14, 2014 at 3:49pm
Ha! Not unless James' are Chinese.

Nicely played Paul!

Side note: I always hear in my head "and now I am the ruler of the Queen's Na-vee" during the last phrase of this tune.   =8-*

Ha!  Maybe work it up into an operatic parody?

Your banjo really sounds great on this one Paul. Gumbo Chaff is just simply one of my favorite tunes period.
