One of the joys of this site has been watching you develop as a player, Carrie. You have a good feel going on here, and just occasionally the fingers trip over themselves trying to keep up. Just a shade slower, and they would be happier, I think. On the other hand, the tempo and mood was just perfect, so I don't at all mind the odd slip. Keep it up!

Thanks Rob.  I can play it perfectly until I hit record - only kidding!  It just became an ear-worm and I had to learn it - I always fall at the Trio.  I need to select some shorter tunes!

Great playing Carrie, I always think that it's best to just to jump in and get going, if we wait until we can play every note perfectly we aren't going to get to play many tunes. I prefer a bit of joie de vivre, energy and spontaneity and somebody who looks as if they are enjoying themselves.

Thanks Richard.  Yes, I think every CB tune I have learnt to play has been a challenge in some way but, that's what keeps it interesting!  If you say to yourself: 'I will never be able to play that!' it can become a self-fulfilling prophecy and you will be stuck playing 'Sunflower Dance' forever...(even though, that isn't even that easy!)
