    We finally got a winner, Daybreak in Dixie, which was submitted as a bluegrass tune. I am about to head out the door, so I'll ask our helpful members to help me with this tune!

    Since most versions are extremely fast I never hear the exact details of what the professionals play. I made my own interpretation at a slow rate...

    great day, Luurtie! Well played! I doubt I've played this tune once in the last 5 years and it always goes too fast.

    Interesting to try to imagine what I used to do on this melody!

    Like luurtie's version (which is marvelous, as always), mine is played at a somewhat more relaxed pace than many of the virtuoso performances on YouTube.

    Very fine picking indeed -- unlike the superfast "pro" versions, I can actually make out the tune in Bob's and Hendrik's recordings. And a very fine tune it is, too.

    In Luurtie's and Bob's renditions I can appreciate the beautiful nuances of the tune, in the "pro" videos I'm lost with the speed. It's like a super fast train in a landscape, when we lift our heads up, it's gone. In the case of a slow train, we can even see the faces of the passengers!

    Great, Hendrik and Bob.
    Now Bob, you are funny. Relaxed pace ! I think that applies more to Hendrik's version than your speed demoniac performance.

    Surely it's just all my mistakes that make it sound fast...
