Double banjos on Big Scioti. My son wanted me to learn this, but I only knew of Adam Hurt's fine version, which was different from what my son played, and also near-impossible for me to figure out. I listened to Mark Johnson's claw grass version and numerous youtube versions. From all that, I came up with a composite. In the B part, I go with the bluegrass way of playing the C major chord before the E minor. I prefer the OT way with the Em first, but none of my picking buddies do that. I inserted one major glitch for your listening enjoyment.

I recorded this from a 45 RPM with BH on one side and Cripple Creek on the other. I saw Shannon in Stone Co. AR in 1970 or '71; performing at a craft fair, and purchased the self-produced record from him.

If I counted correctly, this is the 97th audio recording of CMB posted on BHO--not counting the dozen or more backup tracks.Not only did Stanley compose a tune that grabs you, but it works for both clawhammer and bluegrass picking. Some other reasons likely exist for its wide appeal. There's hardly a need for another mp3 of the tune here. However I'm hoping that clawhammer versions are way under half of the postings, and I hope that my version may be a bid different from other CW takes. I forgot to capo to A, so the song is in G modal on a 12' tubaphone with a 5-string repro neck.
