I was asked to play some banjo on the funeral of Massimo Ferri, a musician friend, so I sat down grabbed my banjo that I hadn’t touched for a long time and started to play. While playing and thinking of Massimo this tune came into being. On the funeral my fingers didn’t exactly follow “the instructions” but I somehow managed to play it with some minor “accidents”.
Massimo was a good guitar and mandolin player and had a great sense of humor. I will miss him.
