A comment on all three tunes really...

These are all very nicely done.  I knew from your Forum posts that you had an interest in bowing and it shows in your playing.

In particular, the question of how to make Green Willis actually sound like a fiddle tune worth playing is something that's eluded me lo these many years.  I think you might've answered it.

And I like your versions of the other  two tunes better than either Alan Jabbour's or Henry Reed's.

So, if you ever attend a festival on the East Coast and hear somebody playing these tunes using an approximation of your bowing  but with worse intonation - it'll likely be me... (;-))
