    i know the mystery fiddler!  John, this is awesome. Any chance you would provide the tab for your backup?  And did you completely improv or try to model somebody? Is it f# minor?  It is beautiful masked man!

    Cricket….hmmm….maybe he’s under a witness protection program???  Or maybe John charges a lot for onscreen appearances.

    (I don’t think it’s intentional.  I think the camera person didn’t realize there was a fiddle player).

    ok..I didn’t have the chance to watch the entire video, but just the first part i saw looked like he was behind the pillar, facing the other direction…like…I kinda wondered if he was ghost fiddling for somebody on stage, but I didn’t see anybody with a fiddle on stage…lol.  I just about can’t get through a video these days without all kinds of events going on here…lol.  I live in crazyville…what I saw of that video…it all sounded very good to me, but I was confused by what I saw…lol.

    Me too Cricket.  I was wondering why the judge mentioned John when he wasn’t there?

    Maybe John spotted someone in the crowd with a box of rotten tomatoes?

    LOL…yeah, something like that.  I really thought he was playing so someobdy else could pretend to be playing or something…except, there was nobody else…lol.  I once saw that on TV…John Denver was wielding, so to speak, a fiddle, singing Thank God I’m a Country Boy…on stage, and they kept showing the guy backstage who was actually playing the fiddle…lol…I was like…this is not helping John Denver much…lol.

    Amantha Mill at the Jones House in Boone, NC! Haha I didn’t know this was online. Becca Egger Gryder singing, Tony Reese on resophonic guitar, Zeb Gamble on mandolin and Billy Helms on guitar. Obviously the videographer didn’t think I needed much face time, lol.

    Angela, the backup I was playing was totally improvised, but I absulutely loved this song. You are right, the key is F#m (relative minor of A) with some really cool chord changes.

    The break on “Sweet Temptation” at 8:43 in the video is also improvised with some John Cockman original licks (I’m proud of the one that goes up the neck). 🙂 Zeb popped that song on us and it had a nice swing feel. It was a fun set!
