    Nice job! I introduced this song to my jam group, which is generally reluctant with "new" (read not 50s-60s) but it caught on and gets requested every week.

    I’ve been playing baritone for about 10 years. I was drawn to it’s guitar-like sound in a small size, easy on your fingers nylon strings and easy chording. I still like it for those very reasons.
