I once took banjo lessons over 20 years ago from an old friend who tried to teach me to play the 5 string. With small kids I never took time to learn. Now with the kids all grown I now have time to devote to learning. My friend played a song that I always wanted to learn. Over the years I lost touch with this friend and I recently found out he died in a boating accident. He played the song BEAUTIFULLY! But I cannot remember the chords and picking for the song. It's called "The Old Spinning Wheel" I would like to find the tablature to it or a banjo recording if possible. But I have not been very lucky. Can anyone out there help me out?
Thanks MikeAdd Comment

Beginner Mastercraft (El Cheapo) I did have a Washburn B-5 long ago :o(
Scruggs & Butch Robbins & John Lawless. An old friend, John Britt, of Portsmouth, VA was my first banjo teacher. John is no longer with us but I sincerely miss his wit, humor and talent on the 5 string.

Just starting out after a 20 year absence. I now have the time to devote to learning the 5 string and I want to play on the porch of our new North Carolina mountain home. Hope to hear from some other Western Carolina pickers so I can learn more.
