    Myanocsko (I'm impressed by some of your usernames...), your Fisher version is lovely. Is it your own or have you found it somewhere? Love your playing, too.

    Isn't it nice how all these recordings just drop in at the end of the month? (ok, it's the beginning of the month now..)

    the version i learned is partly from mel bay's mandolin 2000 book and from dix bruce's play along old time fiddle book.

    All 3 of those posted on July1 are very nicely done. This project is very cool, and a great way to share music and learn.

    In case any of you were wondering why I, the guy who tried to land Fisher's as our song-o-the-month three times hasn't recorded a version - I've been gone a lot! I just recorded one last night, and for take 2, I was very happpy with it. Thanks for waiting and thanks for having Fisher's on for the month. I didn't know the song prior, and I just think its' beautiful.

    It sounds great, Alan! It's Mandoanon's tab version isn't it? I tried to play it too but there were too many papers to keep track of... I never remembered when to add this and that, so I just played the version in the mandolin picker's fakebook. I really like this version though, I love the way it builds up. Nicely done, I really appreciate the simple basic recordings, they're so inspiring.

    Craig n Tjej,

    Thanks, as always for your kind words. #I sure don't have time to try a 'layered' version with tracks and all. #Funny thing was I haven't been happy with my playing lately and haven't played much lately at all. #All of a sudden I grab my mandolin and run off two attempts at Fishers' and that was #2. #Funny how you are sometimes better after a "break" from the mandolin.

    At that rate, I might just put down the ol mando for 3 years and in 2007 I'll be Sam Bush. (that is, if I don't cut my HAIR as well).

    I've noticed that, too. I suppose you need a break sometimes. Not too long breaks, though...

    Ken! Your recording is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I don't understand how people do to play that fast, I just can't do it. It sounds lovely, very well done indeed.

    The hardest thing about trying to play faster is to relax your hands and arms. I can only keep it up for a short while before I start to tense up again. The more often I play though the better it gets. I have heard recordings though that make my playing seem slow.
