My band had a practice today. Let me tell you a little about us. Most of them have been together about 5 years. I just joined last Sept. We have a banjo & guitar player/vocalist (they're a married couple & were the charter members), a mando, a guy that plays autoharp & guitar, and electric bass player, and a gal who clog dances (Doris). It is Doris who I'd like to highlight here. She's originally from West Virginia, and has the most delightful accent. So during our practice, we wanted to go through the tune FLY AROUND PRETTY LITTLE MISS. That's a tune that I play fiddle & sing on. I was kind of nervous 'cause I hadn't done the tune with the group yet. But it went fairly well. I remembered all the verses and tried to sing in what I figure is a good way to sing in the "old-time way". So we get done with the tune and Doris said I nailed it. She said I should have been singing with her West Virginian family, it sounded so authentic. I must have blushed 3 shades of red. I told her I was just trying to imitate a sound. She said I nailed it. I'm happy as a pig in (you know).

Cool - I hope you upload that to your music page.
Maybe some other tunes from your new string band too? :-)
