Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

I do not like my old recording of JJ anymore so I decided to come up with a new version which features more variations. At first you hear the melody in half speed using double stops on banjo. Than I pick a standard bluegrassbreak in the key of G followed by a fiddle break in the same key. Now I switch back to the key of D and I pick the solo you might know from my old recording. To round it up I finish the song by using the double stop melody on fiddle. A tab of the break in the key of D is provided in the photo section on my account. Hope you like it. Picked on the HUBER BANJO.

So many moods which take an old tune to new levels. Good listening and well played.

Very Cool.   Nice version of the song, different than any other version I've heard.  We need you to move to Oklahoma.
