    Hey pretty cool! I'm working on the same song. I have Part-A down solid but still working on getting Part-B smoothed out a bit. Unlike what Steve does in that 2nd part, I strictly stick to the up-down picking instead of the down-up-up in that section. It's a little more difficult doing it the other way due to crossing over the extra string, but I'm so used to the bluegrass crosspicking style that I'm going to stick with it until I get it down solid!

    Nice Mike! Glad to see you're sharing your music with us. My only pearl of wisdom is to boost the volume. Couple of options would be to put the mic closer to the guitar, or boost the gain on the mic (if there is a dial), or boost the gain on your amp (if you're using one). Well played man!

    Ok, here is a better upload. I tried to upload from GarageBand but that produce a poor upload. This one is much better. I replaced the original link.
