Tune played by Henry Reed, recorded by Jabbour as "Breakdown in A". Benford and Hoffman recorded a nice version as part of a medley, called it "Over the Mountain". Fiddle in AEAE, Orpheum banjo. My fiddle plays the West Virginia tunes better now that I put a rattlesnake rattle in it.

An experiment using tenor banjo strings on a short-scale banjo. 3rd & 4th strings are wound............. 0.030" wound 4th, 0.023" wound 3rd, 0.016" plain 2nd, 0.012" plain for 1st & 5th........ banjo is a 1922 Fairbanks-Vega Whyte Laydie tenor converted to short-scale 5-string. Action is still a little low, I played the A part low on the banjo a couple of times to hear the wound 3rd & 4th.
