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

I learned this tune from Ken Perlman Tab. He attributes the arrangement to Ken Jennings. It goes to show that clawhammer style banjo can be applied to genres other than old time, traditional or fiddle music (as many others at the Banjo Hangout have demonstrated)

I had a go at this tune a week or so ago but was sidtracked and did not succeed with missing the strings. I have been watching your videos on You Tune and like you playing.
