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

I ran across this recording on my hard drive a couple of days ago, forgot I had it. Don Couchie came to Boston for a visit back in March, 2010, and this is one of the tunes we played in my living room, recorded on my hand-held Tascam DR-1. This tune comes originally from the repertoire of West Virginia fiddler Burl Hammons. Apparently, every time Hammons recorded it, he varied the melody a bit, which helps explain all the variations floating around. Don is on fiddle; I'm playing three-finger style banjo, key of G, banjo tuned gDGAD.
