Hey Don - I just bought a Minstrel Style Banjo at Banjo Camp and I have been playing this tune over and over since I brought it home. I took it to Tim's on Thursday, but I guess you were getting ready for Black Creek. The version I am playing is from the Dan Gellert recording, but I want to try the original version. John Reddick
