Your Melodies

Basically a song about a failed friendship, which as we all know is best done with several banjo tracks!

It's so nice to hear a new song from you. Cool to see you back posting. Keep 'em coming, yeah?

Needs more banjo.

Ah ha ha ha. Seriously, this is really nice. I like the way it sort of trails off, awkwardly plinking into the false endings (1:20 & 2:50) -- maybe it's the sound of the rain you made? -- and then comes sweetly back (and then the real ending is just -- zoop! done!).

Are you familiar with Supperbell Roundup? He's this banjo-playing, Greyhound-traveling, busking kid -- his album is pretty neat. You might like it.

Very plaintive and melancholy. Good job.

"Learn to love your melody".

That is really quite lovely.

Always enjoy your banjo playing, and this one has a pretty melody. Something about your vocal delivery this time around reminds me of M Ward. Nice. There is a nice effortless feel to what you do. As micayetoca said, keep 'em coming!

I'm sorry but I have to laugh with the ending, you're such a teaser with two falsies, even though I read karlos' comment, I was still kinda waiting for more when the end came.

You really do makes things very sweet, smooth and seemingly effortless. Awesome banjo picking man.

I had this song stuck in my head all weekend, and I couldn't figure out where the hell I picked it up. It finally clicked -- catchy tune!
