Jeez, Hyram - what's there to say?
You've been playing since 1964 and - as your profile says - sound both "expert" and "professional".
Every one of those tunes is very well played.

I'd have to agree with OTJ, well done. While I personally am not excited by the band you're playing with (is a programmed back up band or live studio musicians?) the fiddling is fine and dandy.

You are a finely honed musician and fiddler, and I would love to hear you as a member of a "band" as opposed to backed up by "slick" studio guys. That would just be my personal choice, because this is obviously, both professional and radio friendly.

The fiddling itself is VERY good, but for my taste, the recordings that I listened to so far (Cotton Eyed Joe and Dragoon) were a bit overproduced-
you've got enough other stuff in there that it starts to cover up the fiddling. And the fiddling is what I'm after. I'd tend to prefer something with less reverb, no synthesizers, that sounded pretty much like a live performance, except with better sound quality AND the possibility of hearing what you'd do with a fiddle harmony to your own fiddle melody. I think a twin fiddle sound, whether both playing melody or one playing harmony is appealing, more than that starts sounding mushy to me.
Then again, that's me. I'm sure there are people out there who like a more produced sound with fiddles in it.
