Blue Tail Fly

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

A tune that dates from the minstrel tradition (aka "Jimmy Crack Corn" or "Get Up in the Morning"). I've been trying to mess around with some different OT finger styles, and this happened to fall out. In the neighborhood of double B on my Brooks banjo.

Fine delicate picking, Adam. You are on to something, for certain. I would love to hear what else falls out of the banjo from your messing around.

Thanks for the comment Don. I've been having some fun with it.

I also really enjoy your picking, and am looking forward to working my way through some of your tabs.

With a little background hiss you've produced an endearing old 78 sound through this fine tune and picking. Really enjoyed it, thanks.. :-)
