Derek playing Steve Kaufman's arrangement of Ragtime Annie on the Tanglewood! Comments welcome.

Yay Derek! Smooth, lively, and chock full of feeling. If you had a goal with this project, I would say you've exceeded it handily. Will come back and listen simply because it's that enjoyable:)
Thanks Louis! Always appreciate your encouragement :-)
Nice picking!! I learnt the self same version from Steve Kaufman but like me you put in a few extra bits. Looks like she has made you do your picking the garage teee heee
Thanks Mike. I have to prove to myself that I can play the material as written but once I've done that I start to allow myself some leeway to have fun and drop in my own bits. There's not too much space to do that in SK's version of Ragtime Annie but I managed a few variations. No doubt my version of this tune will creep ever further away from SK's as times goes on. Yeah, the garage... heh.
Derek: Mike above is teaching me blue grass and showed me this site. Fantastic rendition by you of this great song. Thanks for sharing. I'm off to Mike's to practice!!!!
Hey Craig. Thanks for the kind comment. The credit for this version should really go To Steve Kaufman who's arrangement it is. Good luck with your bluegrass studies, it's wonderful music and great fun to play. I look forward to hearing/seeing you play some time down the line. Kind regards, Derek
This has been my favorite flatpicking/fiddle sine I first heard Doc Watson do it 55 years ago! Your rendition is more than excellent! Guess I'll just have to keep practicing until I get it right!
