    This is the first thread I clicked tonight. I don't quite hear you hit the notes, so much as feel the wave hit me. Playing with your eyes clothed helps you achieve this effect, no doubt. Will have to study. Bravo!

    Thanks Frantic, We played the grooves off a Kicking mule Duck Baker ( finger style guitarist) album back in the day, Duck was very much about the right hand, and while I venture into "Thrash" mando I've always liked the lilt of this tune and the hard edges Duck introduced ( going to the F in the 2nd section) , O'Connor, Ma, and Meyer did the same thing with "She moved through the Fair" on their Appalachian Waltz album.
