Dropbox changes

Hi, everybody.  Dropbox has changed a few things about how they share files, which unfortunately means that I have a lot of work to do to go back and change the links to every file I've posted so far.

I'm testing the new file sharing method with the blog post for "Drowsy Maggie". If you get a chance, can you try to play and/or download the Drowsy Maggie tracks, and reply on this post if it worked or not?

Thanks,
Dave

  1. Dave;
    Wow-can't believe that I've lost access to the FA backing tracks; I've used those for the past 3+ years for practice and have come to rely on them for perfect timing and chording accuracy. Really hope that you can bring them back up soon. Thanks so much,clc

  2. Dave - I tried 5 of the Drowsy Maggie backing tracks, and they all work great. I'm another person who has used your backing tracks for over 2 years, several times per week. Thanks so much for making and sharing them. Looking forward to using them again! Thanks again. Felix

  10. Hi Dave,
    Files are working fine for me, too. I'm really sorry that you have to go through all of this, but as everyone else has already said, THANK YOU for taking the time!! This is my favorite bluegrass/flatpicking site on the web and I tell all of my picking friends about it. It truly is an invaluable gift you've given everyone with these files. Here's hoping you can get things back up and running before too long.
