The combination of your style of strummin' and singing have real nice "on the front porch of the cabin" feel it. Good job and keep 'em coming.

Patty -Thanks I'm not familiar with Red River Valley but but never one to duck a challenge I'll give it a go if its do-able N&D
Jud and JH thanks also.
I took my version from one played on Banjo Manolin,Guitar and Bass.So I had to work it our for the MD. The track was actually entitled Salt Creek/Darling Cory so I'm not sure what I'm playing really but I kinda like it anyway even if my execution isn't quite as good as i'd have liked. My wife likes to say that when people say they play a different version they mean "you"(I) got it wrong! ha ha . Am I bothered? Am I ... well no.
Trust me to have my first vocal effort posted along side Laura Elder's beautiful song. Talk about the beauty and the beast!!
I am still struggling trying to play and sing/moan/warble but I guess its a case of 'keep practising'
Thanks for listening

First go? No way! I liked the combo of the vigorous strum and the ballad feel of the vocals.
