LOVE YOUR STYLE! 

Geez, now I want to learn 'Toss The Feathers', too. 

I know we always want to keep polishing, but

this sounds really good. 

 

Your playing makes me want to get up & DANCE!

Appreciate it @Mark !  thank you!

@elcbk  that gif is hilarious!! thank you for the supportive words and laugh!  

@stringy thanks.  yeah i just went with the triplet ornament on B part.  probably should try and throw some rolls in on those parts.  Theyd be a 4th finger roll since it starts on The D note... a little more of a challenge for me.  also on A parts those triplets you hear alot.. I feel they get a little annoying after 1 or 2 times hearing let alone 6 or 8 so im gonna see what else would work there.  this is the D version of tune..think D mixo ... and there is another version im hearing thats more akin to what the coors do that seems like would be interesting to mix in with what im trying to play here.  hoping next week to get with teacher on this and a couple others.  fun tune..especially that B part.

Thank you Katie for the kind words!  appreciate it and glad you liked!

Theres a few more standard type tripletts in tge A part..Those are the ones I just slurred, incorrect or not, and played 3 notes with fingers.. the ornament style tripletts in 2nd part are probably what youre speaking of.  not really supposed to be even length..the last note is sorta supposed to be slightly longer.. which i probably rushed a bit.  dont know how interested youd be but heres a good video on them.  the style of music not everyones type but if so in your case its a good primer on the triplett ornament..   thanks again!

I like the way you play it greg, wouldnt change a thing, but, then again, experimentation is what makes it fun.
