Ok Paul......was this intended for for fretted .....or not?

You've played it both ways I'm sure. Tunes like this one seal the deal...IMHO

It's not so much the range, but the chords and double stops

Nice job.  I've always liked that one.  I remember it being used in the sound track for a documentary about the Mexican War.

It's on the CD "Songs of the Santa Fe Trail and the Far West" by Mark Gardner with Clarke Buehling.

Yes, I have that one, too.  Bought it a couple years ago at AEBG.
