Ok, I admit it ain't a banjo. It's a five string though. ... a 5 string tenor guitar which is tuned from the bottom up .. F C G D A .. just like a tenor guitar (or banjo) with an added lower string another fifth down. This one happens to be a converted Corrado Giacomel (fine luthier from Genova) Octave Mandola.

There's lots of versions of this tune. This is a minor one (at least in key signature). The 4th string is tuned down to C. Played on the '29 Granada. Paul Knight on bass.

Not sure which title is correct. Who would be when they learned it from Stampfel and Weber - The Holy Modal Rounders? Sure is a lot like Walking Boss by Dock Boggs. Paul Knight plays bass. I'm playing the '29 Granada.

Here's my version obviously influenced by lots of others but somewhat original I hope. It's played in regular G tuning capo'd up two frets in the key of E. And it's on the good old '29 Granada. David Nelson plays guitar and Paul Knight, bass.
