You've become the Turlough O'Carolan of the banjo!

Had to look that up. Glad it was something good.

From Wikipedia, "Many of his songs were designated as "planxties", a word Carolan apparently invented or popularized to signify a tribute to a merry hosts. In return for writing songs in honour of wealthy patrons, Carolan was often welcomed as an honoured guest on their estates."  When we practice, that's why you are welcome at my 850 sq. ft. estate!  And what you have been composing lately are "planxties"!

Fantastic!!! Are there "dots" for this?  I'd like to play it. (thanks Tim.)

Oh, that's great you like it. I'll put some dots up tonight.

Nah, I love it.

That is a Luscomb. It is borrowed, until I get my     @#$%^&*   ( secret code )
