Drunken Hiccups tuning- there is a concept that will need explaining to the uninitiated.  I always thought of this tune as old-timey programmatic music, you can just see the inebriated stumbling down the path.  That low, deep banjo tone really adds to the veracity of the whole sound.  Really nice playing.
