This is the April edition of my Foggy Mountain Banjo Project.
I'm submitting this more than two weeks late due to an illness during April that really slowed things down.
I learned the up the neck part by ear from Bennett Sullivan's recording of this tune. It is pretty close to Earl Scruggs's main break, but it is slightly different. I added my own down the neck arrangement, which I decided to do after listening to Tony Trischka's version of this tune from his Territory album. Tony's version uses Travis style in the main, which I'm not doing here. I just used Tony's version as inspiration.
Next time I will post Cripple Creek. I'll try to get back on schedule (posting at the end of the month), but there's a good chance it will be a little late.

Nicely played! I like that the melody stands out. The bends sounds great.
