good playing but curious as to where the other strums in 2nd part of Corn shucking jig are coming from. I only see you playing the first down stroke
Comment by Paul Draper on October 20, 2011 at 8:48am
Are you referring to the figure 8?  Down stroke by head, up stroke betwn nut and 5th string peg, down stroke betwn 5th string peg and head, up stroke at head....

right i see it now. I play that tune so am familiar with the figure eight stroke. i just couldn't see it the first couple of times i looked at video..  well done

Very cool. These songs never tire. And very nice neck acrobatics, too. I followed your hand like it was a cat dancer.
