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

Most versions of Cherokee Shuffle contain 8 measures in Part A and 10 in Part B. This one contains 10 measures in both A and B, with a return to the F#minor chord during the extra 2 measures in Part A. Some Old Timers play it this way, although it's not very common. I prefer the tune played this way; gives it a more "Old Timey" sound from my perspective. For a great fiddle/string band version of the tune played this way, see the YouTube link of the UCLA Bluegrass and Old Time String Band with special guest Tommy Stanton: 4 tracks: Clawhammer Banjo (Gold Tone CC-OT) melody and guitar bounced to track 1; Bass track 2; Three-Finger Rhythm Banjo track 3; Hammered Dulcimer track 4. As always, with headphones/earbuds, you'll be able to pick up the bass, whereas probably not with laptop speakers.

Enjoyed then both! I've just started on CS, 3 finger version. Good to hear this more trad approach too. Thanks for posting :)

Nicely done, Dan, sounds mighty fine. Great picking, and great engineering, too.
