Mighty fine pickin' all around.

I always find myself hypnotized by Kenny Smith's incredible right hand, which is the purest essence of economy of motion. Sometimes it seems from a distance that he's not playing what I'm hearing, because my eyes miss some of his more subtle pick movements.

"...I hate to see that ol' evening sun go down.." Said to be one the most picturesque lines in all of American music or literature. Very nice job on a very nice old song. I'll have to go home and give that a try....TRY bring the operative word.

Nice to see those guys play this old number. Seem to recall an old MWN ish had this tune laid out, need to dig it up.

Wowzers! I love that old tune. One of my aunts insisted that it be played at her funeral. They didn't do it. I'm sorry they didn't.

Dave Apollon's version of that one is awesome, (as is anything of his)...
