    Interesting song, and some nice fiddlin’!  I would have preferred to hear you singing it, rather than the singer on the recording.  I think you would have sounded better.  But, hey!  I still enjoyed listening to it.   🙂

    I really dig that shirt, by the way!   🙂

    That’s John, just before he heads off to the mines.

    You got your pinky curled up in a scrunch John…ha, thought you’d get away with it didn’t you?

    Haha the curse of the curled pinky. Thanks for noticing, Rodger. 🙂

    Great Scott, I was going to sing it, but I just got lazy. Plus I am planning a set of backup lesson videos where I just play along with other people’s recordings. It will save a lot of time if I don’t sing it myself!

    Yeah, yeah, yeah. It does match my vocal range. One of my peeves is that so many songs are performed by men that sound like women. Sonny Rhodes has a man’s voice.

    Wow, cool song. Might have to see if the trio is interested in that one…

    Are you playing on top of an existing fiddle part ar am I just hearing effects?

    I’m playing directly over the real version, so that is not an effect you hear. That is the sound of two fiddles in unison. So much easier to publish it that way!
