A song I’ve been playin’ since I heard Dave was ill. It’s not how I usually play. I don’t/can’t play like Dave. I don’t play slide. But I loved watching DaveLynas videos as he leaned back in his living room, out in the garden, or by the fire. I always watched his exaggerated index finger brushing and picking the strings. I tried to do that here.

I only knew, or knew of, the man for a short time but his enthusiasm, kindness, creativity, and music - his days - affected mine.

Nicely done

A very tasteful and fitting tribute Rope! Dave’s creative contributions and interactions will be missed. He brought a lot of flavor to CBN!

Nice Rope, it did not take  Dave long to reel you in. Kind

Very sad to process but completely needed to remind us. Such a fitting tribute to our departed friend. Thanks Rope. Dave will forever be a CBN legend.

That was Nice Rope, not near how he did it but  nice that you did,us playing  on and remembering him, strange how someone grows on you , you fellors live in the same land and never meet one and other, heard the news today and it happened yesterday, on a day that my sister celebrates  her 40 years anneversery  Dinner and party while your sad for the loss of a friend, Strange day's in a funny Old World! But we play on! and remember.

PS:  I was wondering what song I would play for Dave.  Right now, I don't know.  Will the Cirlce Be Unbroken comes to mind.   But I am saving that one for when my 93 year old momma passes.  It will be hard to do.  Maybe a hobo song for Dave.... Hmm.

Good tribute and play, Rope.  Dave would have appreciated it. Heck maybe he is now or someday will.  He had a very distinctive sound with a little irregular stumble to his play.  I liked it.
