@SharonC -

I'm seeing triple! 

You really made "Dan O'Keefe" sound special - I love slides! 

🤔 Don't know why I haven't learned that tune, yet. 

Very enjoyable! 

 

@Mark -

I've seen the title, "Hector The Hero", but never realized what a beautiful tune that is. 

Maybe it's because you manage such a wonderful, warm tone out of your violin! 

I'm envious. 😏 

Really enjoyed this!

Emily, Greg, 

Thank you.

After I recorded it, tried a mic I had here and by simply repositioning it, that corrected the thin sound i was getting with it, hopefully next time I record i won't over drive the mic.

There is a time for enjoying peoples performances and a time to critique. I'm glad that people here feel secure enough to post of themselves and are not subject to judgment.
I'm proud of all of you who post videos. Thanks.
