Buckley, 1860. I brushed the cobwebs off this one for the occasion. Didn't quite get them all.

Thanks, Chris. You'll notice I modified (simplified) the first two measures of the 2nd part...

I didn't even notice.

I gotta get it together cuz it's on page 18 and I'm on 16. Quite a bit of those natural override notes too.

I have really enjoyed what a good job that Buckley book has done so far in breaking the usual finger patterns I've become accustomed to using for so long. Its got me doing different fingering all over the fret board as well as some light finger style bits here and there. Looking forward to all the upcoming tunes.

I agree! Buckley always keeps it fresh. And for the most part you're on your own choosing how you want to play the right hand. (And a lot of the tunes play well finger-style also.)

That's in Ryan's but can't recall the title.  Wes can probably tell us.
