    This week, we had a tie, and since it's been a while since we've had a Bluegrass tune, I made the decision to go with An Unclouded Day, which was submitted as a Bluegrass Gospel tune.

    Here's a real Bluegrass version with Doyle Lawson on mandolin:

    Don't let that discourage you, even kids can play this song:

    Basic melody and variations:

    I don't know, why I suggested this song, I seem to be the world's worst Bluegrass mandolin player.
    That's why I tried to play this piece as a relaxed swing tune on my tenor guitar. It's a cheap Kala tenor, but it was fun to rediscover it...

    I would like bluegrass more if it sounded like this!

    Crisscross you can play that!
    A good effort too -I couldn’t get myself to try it.
    Well done.

    Thanks atsunrise! In this slowed down tempo, you could play it too.
    Just be aware, that there are a few measures too much in the linked sheet music.

    I would echo Robert's sentiments too, Christian. The tune suits your interpretation really well.
