As the paddle wheeler pulls away from the dock
There you are, barefoot, leaning back in your wooden chair on the deck in your bib overalls plucking away. This is plain happy music Chris and you bring a smile with your honest and skilled rendition.

Cheers,
Doug

I lose track of the Entertainer melody, but this does stay pretty entertaining all the same.

Doh and I tried so hard to nail the tune to the fretboard......still I get carried away...some say I should get carried away ...or at the least ,carted off.....

I tried and tried not to
play it too fast or too swingy....apparently old Scott J did not approve of his tunes being played that way.....

Thanks

Nice!
the way that you make the tune suit a banjo rather than try and take off a piano. i think i did a version a while back that was pretty much a piano copy on a guitar. i'll have to dig it out and see what it sounds like.

Much enjoyed.

Oh Chris,
you are the most self effacing and genuine guy on this site. You are good and you do make me happy with everything you do. I enjoyed that. They should pipe your stuff into wards full of humbug people. They'll have to lighten up. Thanks, kid.
