Despite the title (others may know it as "Lonesome Road Blues), I feel pretty great singing this song! 

Given the number of times it's been recorded since Henry Whitter did so in 1924, I don't think I'm alone in that sentiment. Bill Monroe, Woody Guthrie, Cliff Carlisle, Elizabeth Cotten, and the Grateful Dead are just a few who have ventured down this lonesome road. 

Below is a video tutorial for how to play and sing this one with three ways of playing vocal backup of increasing complexity (click here to download the tab for the vocal backup and lead break). 

(RELATED: If you enjoy this tutorial, there are many more inside of the Breakthrough Banjo course, including a series of modules on playing and singing. Click here to learn more.)
