Very well done, Tony... that was fun. Love the warm tone from your Gretsch. I'm not familiar with that rag tune, but I really enjoyed it. Thanks.

Thanks Kerbie. I thought the Gretsch sound really suited this piece.

That was a fun tune to listen to, and it sounds fantastic on your Gretsch. You must have a lot of enjoyment playing it. I certainly enjoyed hearing it, so thanks.

You're welcome! Yes, it's a great piece to play. I dug it out of a pile of old arrangements from about a decade ago. I couldn't play it back then.

Thanks Rod. It was a friend who suggested that I recorded on the Gretsch rather than my usual nylon string. Glad I did!
