After hearing Don Borchelt's stellar playing on this tune I had to try it too. 2-finger style in D/D tuning on my OME Juggernaut

Fantastic. Did you figure that arrangement out by ear?

Thanks John, Yup, I didn't want to be overly influenced (steal) by Don's version because it's his own so Tish hummed the tune for me and I chased it down from there. I had it cornered for a couple of days before I came up with an arrangement I liked.

That is one of those banjo performances that might well help to give some of those who have no love for banjo second thoughts about their dug in position. Superbly musical!

Chip:  I had to fiddle this tune at our show this evening.  One of our regulars requested it.  Hadn't played it in quite a while.  I did okay, but wish you had been there playing it with me.  I do like the tune, but we got out of the habit of playing it regularly.
