That is amazing!!!!!  How much time have you spent practising that????   Please don't say only a few hours! That is on my list to learn and it would take me months!!!

Thank you Anthony, that is absolutely superb, live and unbeatable playing.

ps. I have just crossed it off my list :-((

Thank you Ian :), this piece was very difficult for me as it requires a lot of concentration to make it "clean" from beginning to end that makes me think of "Rag Pickings" at first glance unfeasible. .. But working without getting excited, it took me 7 to 8 days of work, you can notice that I left the errors on my part, but I am absolutely certain that you can do it, and very well ;)

Delightful! This is one of my favorite pieces (among many, of course). There's a recording of it from the soundtrack of "Crumb" that is done very slowly and hauntingly...on the mandolin.

Great performance - it takes a lot of perseverance to learn a complicated piece like that.  It would take me at least a month!

The band Rattletrap Ruckus do a nice recording of this featuring accordion and tenor banjo

Thank you Carrie :), Yes it is a complex piece but that like "rag pickings" unlocks under the fingers and become easier after a few days :)

J'ai essayé de traduire. C'était un désastre. Il a semblé plus de raisonnable en français et j'ai seulement compris la moitié. The part about a super morning in Caledonia was beyond what I can understand!

Easy!!!  Let Google Translate do the work:

"If you up well the banjo drinker played you must believe Bailey tarant with the super morning in Caledonia Quenched though it can moreover without messing up our friend a morning banjo hands lying on the sand ......... .... Lol, I wonder if our Anglophone friends will try to translate .."

You are talking complete gibberish... drunk too much wine??  :-))
