Thanks Mary.  It was a nice day in late October...gosh, I was out there in shirt sleeves!  That's my old dying maple tree that I really hate to cut down.

Thanks Ken.  Yes, this is a difficult piece and it took me a long time to be able to play it.

That sure was nice Ben.  I agree with Lisa, the drones sound wonderful, kind of haunting.

Lisa and Ken, thanks so much for taking the time to listen to my little tunes and commending me on the playing of them.  Yes, I hadn't quite realized the drone effect on Scarborough Fair until I listened to it myself.

Nicely done Ben, I really like your original tune. Boy 60's in Maine this time of year, enjoy it.

Very nice Ben!

Those drones makes it sound so ancient.  I like your timing too.
