Genre: Unknown/None Chosen / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

JP Nestor and Norman Edmonds recorded the classic version in 1927, and many others have covered it since, although it seems to have become more of a staple in bluegrass playing than old-time. That said, Big Hoedown also did a great version. Played on the Tackhead in Open E (open G down a step and 1/2).

A nice exhuberant and convincing presentation.  Well done.

I love it--and I love the sound of your tackhead.
