    Very nice, clean picking Ed. This is the way to go.

    GK, nice picking too.
    If you don't mind the advice of an almost-rookie: try to get rid of your left-hand flying fingers. Keeping them closer to the fingerboard will ultimately increase your speed and synchronisation.
    John McGann has excellent advice on this on his webpage:

    Every time I sat down to record the past few days, something happened... You can hear my wife on the phone in the background

    I mispicked at the end of the first time through part B, but I'm very proud to say that I didn't fall apart.... This is the most coherent video by me, yet!

    I've really been practicing to a metronome from the beginning, in an attempt to keep my speed DOWN, so I really pay attention. Without it, I tend to drift faster and sloppier... I think it's helped a lot.

    It's been a while since I submitted anything and I've always liked this tune tune especially Frank Wakefield's version so here's my attempt at it. It was tough one to get through without too many flubbs. Hope you enjoy!

    I've really enjoyed watching all the great submissions by everyone.

    jamann, good to see you posting again. Nice job. I really like Frank's version on the Kitchen Tapes and this seems like the version you're playing. Enjoyed it.

    As Simon said: the blue notes are really fine (like the rest of the tune).

    Thanks, friends. You are encouraging and kind. I posted this by way of trying out my alternate account. I tried to update an outdated email address I realized was in my provide and the change did not go well for me. But I registered anew with my new address and all is well -- though I might be appearing here in two slightly altered incarnations!
