I learned this tune from "The Banjo Players Songbook" by Tim Jumper. There are various lyrics as found in the book by Tim Jumper and from Woodie Guthrie. Personally, I like the Guthrie lyrics. Tuning: gDGA#D, 2nd string is tuned to match the 3rd string at the 3rd fret

I apologize in advance for the length of this recording, but I am still sharing it. My excuse is that I felt 'in the groove' . It was just fun to play and I didn't have to think about playing, I just closed my eyes. In any event, I felt I should post this since it is one of the first few songs I learned to play.

I learned this tune from "Songs for the American 5-String Banjo", by Erik Darling. As a result of playing this one a fair bit, I've made some changes as compared to the tab. Tuning: gDGBD

Tuned to A. This is a 3 part, A-B-C, tune. To pick a favorite, I like the B part best.

For your review, "May the Circle Be Unbroken". Played clawhammer style. I was home with the kids all day since they were off school for a snow day. So, I had some spare time and recorded a back-to-back comparison. The first tune is played on a steel string banjo tuned to G. The second is play on a nylon strung banjo tuned to A. Let me know the good and bad... Regards, Scott

This title relates to a event where my young daughter Megan put a quarter in my shoe so that I would have some money in case I needed it.

Sally Goodin, I enjoy playing this tune. Careful, you might find yourself playing it for 10 minutes straight like I've done a few times.

G tuning with capo at 2nd fret = aEAC#E My search of the Jukebox places my posting of this song as number 29. It's a fun one for me to play . . . seems others like to play it as well.
