    <div>I posted a video of this about 9 months ago, and I was pleased with it to some extent, but wanted to play the notes a little clearer, sharper; and get some parts a little smoother. After taking a break from it, I worked on it some in the last couple weeks, and I think improved some. I messed up near the end, adding a note that isn’t in it (and messes up the time a little); but kept it as is. This exercise in rerecording let me know I can improve some, but also shows me, with it still needing work, just how much practice it takes to get things down so smooth it becomes automatic to play it well.</div><div>

    @Bill_Brown Thanks much Bill! Glad you liked it.

    The original version was done in 1936 by Victoria Spivey. It was vocals and horns. Tony worked up this finger picking guitar version off of that.
