    Default Long Journey Home/Two Dollar Bill

    This is about the best I've done yet on a bluegrass tune. I'd appreciate any feedback. I'm trying to play David Grisman's solos from Home is Where the Heart Is.

    Thanks!

    Very nice playing. I am always amazed how good most of you are, while I still am an advanced noodiler.

    Nice fluid picking! Did you play the back up track too?

    Thanks to all for the encouraging words ! The backing track is from GrassTrax. They have a bunch of bluegrass tunes. Each one is at a bunch of tempos from 60 to around 130 I think.

    Confidently played & sung. I like your nice, easy approach to playing (as contrasted with my caveman grip!).

    Thanks for the tip about Grasstrax as well.
