    Default New original tune, Midnight Firefly

    https://m.soundcloud.com/user-609577...dnight-firefly
    Can't get the soundcloud embedded player to work, any tips?

    Wrote this tune the other night on clawhammer banjo while looking at a Firefly around midnight. I recorded it as an instrumental relay race, each instrument plays solo then backup then rest, so only two instruments play at a time.
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Yes here ya go. You have to go to advanced and click on the orange SC icon in the bottom row. Nice tune and nice feel to your playing, Gunnar.

    Thanks Jim!
    I tried that, but it said that I hadn't input a valid soundcloud link. I've used the embedded sc player before, don't know why it didn't work...
