Ran..well more like crackled and popped ( knees ankles..everything..lol ) up the stairs for some kitchen acoustic.  My pinky seems to be glued to the ring finger..you guys fight with that?  Dont know for sure how to get it relaxed other than needing it for a note or cut.  Anyway..  Here goes.. violin-student

GregW, 

Sounds good, I'm not familiar with that particular tune.

Thank you,

Mark

Nice piece... sounded fantastic, and not just because of your excellent kitchen acoustics 🙂

Good job Greg.

Don't worry about the pinky. It's way better that it's down and connected rather than moving up and down which is a problem for many. As long as it doesn't touch the strings by accident creating unwanted notes.exactly

Great job on these Greg. Nice combination of tunes. Two of the ones we commonly play here.

I have my thumb up which is much worse. You are in a good position to learn other finger patterns with those fingers down.

Sounds really good @GregW I look forward to the day when I can play like you and the other folks here who have been at it for a while. I've had my fill of nursery rhyme tunes! rofl

Loved Lilting Banshee especially since it was one of my earlier songs.  Good job. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
