Written by Lamar Grier and Bill Monroe sometime in the late-1960's. Recorded by Bill Monroe with banjo player Vic Jordan on November 14, 1968. One of my all-time favorite tunes and not heard that often. Key of Gm. Recorded with my Mills Model Huber banjo and my 1984 Martin HD-28 in a Boss BR900-CD recorder and Studio Projects B1 condensor mic.

Nice down the neck break.  I haven't heard a down the neck break done very often for this tune, and you have a nice one.

Very, very nice, Randy! I heard this tune years ago and completely forgot it. Your version is as good as it gets. regards, Stanger
