Well, this one still needs more work, but it's a start anyway.

That sounds great Paul, looks like Miss Kitty approved too!

Thanks Wes. (fortunately, she's not too discriminating.)

Nice Paul. Way awesome - I am glad you like that tune. It stands out among others. Crazy good job on the trtiplets.

Thanks Tim. I need to work on it more to give it justice, and to play it more consistently. Right now I'm batting around 300.

Good job.  That 'F' part is a killer but it sounds like you've got it on the run!

For as long as I have played it , I seldom feel I "own" it.  I don't like playing a tune live unless I own it. It's coming however. Sometimes you have to go and baptize a tune regardless.

Also, it Is one where I thinik additional percussion really enhances it. So much of the music is in the cracks not played by the banjo. The funk and drive of the tune is in the underlying pulse, and other rhythm instruments help it.
