This is my variation of this tune, towards the end you may notice my eyes flicker upwards , I was looking at a sparrow which landed in a bush just outside my window, they often come down when I play not sure if they enjoy it, or they are the worlds worst critics lol.

It sounded good.

@stringy  Great playing, nice tempo.  Your ornaments sound really good—natural, not forced.

I think it is a good sign if the birds are coming to listen to you.  One of the times my teacher & I played at a nursing home, she was playing a hymn on her own, and a resident parakeet started dancing around & singing his head off—I wish I had thought to record it with my phone, it was amazing.   The birds know when it’s right smile

Thanks again Sharon, As you can probably tell I am trying to find my own style, which I find hard.

I love birds, I spend hours watching them sometimes  they can be very amusing, they have their own hierarchy. I wish you had managed to film that Parakeet, I would love to have seen it, it obviously was enjoying it;)

@stringy - Way to dish them out. Nice!
