Absolutely sensational. Masterfully performed, and I even think it left Tommy a little speechless laugh

Richard has begun using BIAB, I'm very anxious to hear what he will accomplish with it.

I emailed Richard today asking if he's done anything yet with BIAB.

He is currently very busy settling in to his new home in Nashville.

Donny, I've performed a lot of Scott Joplin's works, including Maple Leaf Rag (his signature tune), The Entertainer, Elite Syncopations, Original Rags, The Cascades, The Ragtime Dance, Pineapple Rag, Stoptime Rag and much more.

Joplin (perhaps inadvertently) pioneered the way to jazz and therefore modern jazz. Scott Joplin exemplified genius, albeit unrecognized for too long. He derived the spirit of the music that would be forthcoming and was destined to shape what lie ahead.

Richard's rendition of The Entertainer on guitar is extraordinarily well played.

This was so enjoyable. Thanks for sharing.

Trev

Thanks for that, Trev. Much appreciated.

Richard's 12th fret is marked "CGP" for Certified Guitar Player (as is Tommy's) by Chet Atkins. A very rare honor indeed.
