Hey Ray,
Thanks for the welcome. I'm just now figuring this thing out.

Thanks David,
I'll help any way I can, but to tell you the truth, I just learned this one in the last month or so from a performance DVD of Kilby, Davis and May. The kick off is as close as I've been able to get to Tim Mays on that recording.

Hey Tom, thanks for connecting. Great to hear you've enjoyed Skip, Hop & Wobble and Big Scioty!

All best,

Russ
