Learned from Kenny Baker's version with Bill Monroe. Boy, he sure put in a lot of notes! God bless him.

Thanks, Ken. In bluegrass nobody could beat him, but Stuart Duncan sure comes close!

Nice Janet, never heard that tune before. Sounded real good. Mind me asking what kind of banjo you're playin?

Monroe recorded it in 1975 with Kenny Baker fiddling and Bob Black on banjo. I'm not sure about my banjo. I can just hear my mom chiding me again to write the names of people on the back of photos. I need to write which banjo I'm using. I think it was the open back Bart Reiter, since I recorded that clawhammer style.

Really well played! This is a great example of the type of old time banjo arrangement of a Kenny Baker tune that I would hope to come up with. Interesting how Kenny's tunes sound both new and familiar all at once.

Thanks, Don. I also play it 3-finger picking, but it likes to be clawhammered with double C tuning. There's more Kenny Baker songs out there waiting for me!
