I happened across this performance on youtube. I'd never seen it before and thought maybe you folks would enjoy it as did I.

Wonderful! I may have seen this one a long time ago, but always great to see two masters doing what they do best.

This looks like "Austin City Limits". I used to check every week to see if Chet or Jerry would be on there. I don't check so much any more :-(

Yes, thanks Rich! That's one that I don't recall having seen. I really enjoyed it, and they both made it look so easy. LMark

Nice find, Rich. I must have not seen this before cuz I didn't know it was a polka.. I struggle just playing it as an up tempo ballad... (Simple, but some pretty quick chord changes. And, two different bridges.) LOVE this toon, though!!!
