All right Chick Corea!!

Nice. The acrobatics are sort of fun, aren't they?

Ha!  Still need more work to smooth out the beginnings of those runs.  But I do like that 2nd part.

Yea, as I mentioned, you can close up those arpeggios as does Joe Ayers, but somehow those leaps fall into place, don't they?

Yes, not as hard as they look.  And when played well, sound great.

Still, one of things, where a fiddle line lucked out on the banjo. There are MANY. I find very few fiddle tunes not playable on the banjo. One can see why it was such place of source material.

These leaps are relatively easy because they are F-T-F-T-F-T-F-T-F-T-F etc...

(in measures 6,7,8 of 2nd part...)

Ah...you mean the STRIKE! ( or combination )

All right Chick Corea!!

Paul 'The Chick' Draper.   Hmmm, maybe not.   lolol

Those kind of leaps are more like PffffffT! to me rather than FTFTFTFT.    ;D
