    This week's poll winner is unanimous! East Tennessee Blues! I'm not familiar with it; this is what I've come up with! If whoever suggested this tune, or anyone else, has any other links, that would be great!

    Here's my experiment with backup via loop pedal (double bass and guitar which you can't hear).

    That may go some way to explain the timing issues and my overly serious shoe gazing!

    I have taken the liberty of putting your link in directly, Harry.



    Nice picking, by the way!

    Nice one Harry, you got some nice embellishments there too.
    I’m still on Mandolessons trying to get some sort of reasonable tempo, not easy!
    For accompaniment have you tried a stomp box?

    Thanks for your picking, Harry. Nice double stops and slides.

    Nice job Harry! Here's the original. There's a great bio with this on YT.

    Nice, that original vid sounds more like a jug band Frank.
    And there’s me practicing it for ages as a more staccato, swinged ragtime.

    The band sounds like they’re having a hard time but determined to have fun.
