Thanks for trying to credit me, but I don't think I ever wrote anything original. I tried to claim credit and get royalties for the tuning song (E A D G B E), but nobody has sent me any money for it yet If we could a nickel for every time someone played that, I could share the royalties and we could all retire to a BlueGrass Jam retirement home. Now THAT is not a bad idea... A semi-assisted retirement community where you could have things catered to pickers.
I enjoy the kind of playing when, as you said, you just "follow the chords around" and pick up the melody. Those are the types of things that stick with me. Like that great piece you did what you did for "What will we see". I haven't played that in a long time, but I suspect I could pick up a guitar and play it right now. We do need to record that puppy.
BTW, It's a bit early, but I am already in the mood. Everyone I ran into yesterday seemed to be in a jolly mood, so: Merry Christmas!
