    I’m still working on the Kesh and Amelia’s Waltz but this sounds like fun.  It will be next on my list to learn but I think it may be a bit hard.  I tried it with the measure by measure and it’s gonna challenge me to learn this.  thanks for this fun tune..makes ya want to practice!

    Oh! I guess I missed this lesson! I’ve always loved Florida blues! I have too many things I’m learning to play right now 🙂  but this is definitely going on my list.

    You got to see Chubby Wise, Mr. Cockman? Lucky you!

    Yes! We were on the same festival circuit so I got to experience dozens of concerts and jams with Chubby. I’ll never forget him!
