Here's another video, also shot in an unmade bed - ok, I live in squalor folks. This is the old banjo tune, "The World is Waiting for the Sunrise", played on my 1960ish Martin 0. I hope you like hearing it as much as I enjoy playing this old chestnut.

SO I am watching this and Melissa comes in and says "is that his unmade bed"...as if we have ever made the bad once in the last 19 years. Freaking hilarious.
That is a fantastic tune which will haunt me for days- I watched your hand...it looks easy. I am sure it ain't.
We have been working on "Canary" daily- Mel loves to play it on "her" May Bell. I guess that is what I get :)

oh John, this is really wonderful stuff here mate. Beautifully played, complete with facial gymnastics. Gee I do like it when you give your Martin some lovin...he he

Thanks, Jon. :) I appreciate that.

Well - I've been rebuked over on the Cosmos for not showing my face on these. Next instrumental, you'll get to watch those gymnastics, which are sure to provoke a low score from the Soviet judge. ;)
