Beautiful Mark!
I'm teaching myself the ukulele lately and have EVEN more appreciation and understanding of just how terrific your playing is. This is a delight--thanks so very much for ending my evening on just the right note! Michael

Nice!
I always enjoy your tasteful performances and compositions... This one has a very mellow vibe going on... sometimes reminds me a bit of Doc Watson, until the section that begins at around 3 minutes. I confess to not knowing enough Jerry Garcia music, so I guess I will add that to my list of music I need to check out.

You Might
want to check out some of his acoustic stuff 1st, the album "Reckoning" or some of his stuff with David Grisman. Some of the live Grateful Dead stuff from the 70's esp 77 is really good, you can download whole concerts for free here- http://stash.nugs.net/attics/77may_mp3_home.asp The music does take some getting used to, lots of people hate it- they can be sloppy and out of tune, but it has the same kind of appeal to me as old blues recordings. I'm not even a stoner believe it or not!

Stellar
in every way: playing, tone, phrasing, recording (do you use an iRig?) Always an enjoyable listen Mark: thanks for the download. One of these days, someone (not Jerry of course) will record a tribute to you; and you'll deserve it.

Ed Hannifin said 1991 days ago (March 5th, 2012)
Ahem. Wait. Whoa.
I'm checking my Jerry Garcia Tri-Butatron here, and I believe that you are missing an ascending mixolydian passage, and, let's see here...yep, definite lacking a compressor-plus-envelope-follower kind of effect...

You see, we are on to you, Mr. Stunkel... I don't know who the gray haired old dude is in the photograph, but he has plainly listened to too much Doc Watson in his day, and grown a longer and heavier thumb as a result...

And...do I see any tie-dye? I do not. Do not trifle with us, Mr. Stunkel.

If we have to visit these premises again, pray that we find you in a headband.

Sincerely yours and et cetera...

Well
I have started an online business selling magical necklaces made from organic Walnuts and seaweed, guaranteed to balance your chi and colorize your aura if it's in black and white. We tried to sell nitrous oxide by mail order but the balloons kept popping.

The inimitable Ibstrat !!!
I knew I'd love this from the first note. (Probably even before that note!). Your skill with the guitar is becoming legendary, Mark. Another beautifully-played, slick track that is so pleasant on the ears.
