@ELCBK and @ABitRusty and @stringy - Thanks to all of you. It was a fun one to do and gives me hope for the future. Like everything else about the viola, slides are not easy, but they feel so good!

@JohnG  Sounding good!  I always think of the Burl Ives version on this song.  Beautiful American folk song, & you've done well with it.

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
