An alternate way to play the trill from Luke West Walk Around in Green Converse.

So this short blast came out of the blue, resulting from an earlier discussion (The Trill Is Gone??). Everybody was confused about the trill in the Green Converse Book of 1865. It was said that Ayers played it on his tape some time ago, and I just recently heard it. This is what it sounds like he did. I used a 32nd note triplet, played  fingerstyle on strings 3, 2, and 1 on a unison "B".  Not what the tune called for, but a nice effect none the less. If anybody goes to his grave (Converse) in June, don't tell him we're screwing it up.

Well that counts me out - I can't make that 3rd string stretch

I don't know.....it all seems like a lot of hassle for a little ornament that buzzes right by you

My thinking exactly (for me anyway) - but when done right it sounds really cool because it's so unexpected

With that particular one, I am still not really sure what "done right" actually is.
