Hey Folks-

TCK and I have been working on a little sumpin-sumpin that is offered here for your perusal - our collective rendition of a great old gospel tune made popular by the Carter Family, "Fifty Miles Of Elbow Room".

Enjoy!

OH YEAH!!! Now this is really something. You guys are not only bona fide music junkies, you are great fellas and excellent players too...this just made me smile from ear to ear. Such a thrill to see you two play together on this...and what a briliant choice of tune. Carter Family. Gospel. Happy days are here again. I'll be playing this one more than a few times....

Oh, I was gonna mention about how jealous I am at not being in on the act with two good mates, but I won't bother...I'm'a just gonna keep smilin' and singing along!!! GREAT GREAT STUFF you two. Brightened up an otherwise dreary afternoon. :):):)

Glad you enjoyed it, brother, and thanks for the support.... and Jon - say the word, man. Anytime you're settled in and want to get to work on a uke-a-trois, I'm sure Dave would be game. We could dust off 'Keep On The Sunny Side' or pick another - you call the tune. This one just whetted my appetite for more.....

Thanks Carrie! We had fun doing it..... and our weekly family/friend music night here in the ATL is mostly bluegrass and the Carters always get more than there fair share of calls.....

Thanks so much folks- when Mr. Skidoo sent along the final cut I was floored, and it was a ton of fun!
Jon-now that you are back up and running, throw us a tune (and keep it simple mate)...I am ready for a world wide collaboration.
As for the tune, when you have The Carter Family, Iris Dement and Gillian Welch on your hard drive doing the same tune (not to mention the original Rev. F.W. McGee version), it certainly works it's way into your ear.
In any event-so often miss-credited to the Carter Family, do yourself a favor and listen to the original- it is amazing and it is here (http://www.4shared.com/audio/83lZCVEQ/3-31_Fifty_Miles_of_Elbow_Room.html) Thanks again gang- this video makes my day- the fact that y'all like it is icing on the cake:o

Many thanks, John. We started out a little more complicated than it needed to be - in the end, Dave just recorded his track and sent it to me and I just played along and mixed the whole thing in Garage Band..... the miracles of modern technology......

Already got one in the works Dirk, and Jon is gonna be in it if I gotta fly to Tasmania and set him down myself.
Be nice to have someone who knows something about music from Louisiana sit in as well...hint hint.
Do you hear those strings on my $150 Baritone? If I were you I would run out and buy a set of those- they are AMAZING :)
Oh yeah- and thanks for the niceness my friend- working hard at this, nice to know it ain't totally repelling everyone.

Glad to hear another one's on the way. Those 3 hours a day of practice are starting to show! As to your offer, if I can get to the point where I can fit in 3 minutes a week (house re-built by year's end?), then maybe.
