Clinch Mountain Backstep arrangement

So I thought I’d follow @Flatpickin_Libby’s idea to share my contest arrangement for Galax as well. All feedback and suggestions are welcome! :slight_smile:

Thanks Archie! Good advice too, I sometimes forget to smile when I’m thinking hard about the arrangement although I know it makes you look like you’re having fun when you do! :smiley:

Something the judges look for - connecting with your audience - it’s such a small factor that has a huge impact. handshake

Wow Wow Wow! Very nicely done :blush::hugs:

The only thing I can think of to make it better is a smile or two. Let your audience know you’re having fun.

Absolutely love :purple_heart: your Clinch Mtn arrangement!! You’ve done an awesome job!
I’d have to agree with @Archie & @MissMaggie that a lil smile :slightly_smiling_face: or two :grin: would just top it all off! (& This coming from me (:rofl:) who finds it difficult to pick & grin…)
Wishing u a nice clean run & best of luck in the competition! Rooting for u as well!! Have fun!!

I love those triplets. Many times triplets are thrown in just to do so and often not executed well, but these were spot on.

I bet your family gets invited to a lot of backyard bbqs. “Yeah, sure food will be on around three. Hey, how about bringing your instruments and playing a few tunes?” At least, that is the scam I’d be running.
