Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

A fun work in progress on the Lee 11" walnut banjo. I read somewhere that this tune came along at the beginning of the transition from early minstrel style banjo to what we call clawhammer today. More info at: I'm learning to sing it, too, but that is not ready for public consumption. I'm also experimenting with a cut down, turned around clear plastic Dunlop finger pick on the middle finger which causes a little clattering as it (meaning me) touches strings it isn't supposed to. The pick may or not stay in my back of tricks, as it adds quite a bit of bulk to the finger and tends to get in the way. We'll see.
