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

I wrote this tune last year some time after reading an article about prisoners escaping from jail; something about the tune reminded me of people running like hell. :) As Brushy Mountain was the only southern prison that I've ever seen, I gave this tune it's name. I had recorded this before, about two weeks after I'd learned it, so I thought I'd give it another go now that I have it down better. I figured that the dang rabbits had had enough tuned about getting hunted...our turn for a change.

Thanks a lot, pal! It's great fun to play, and I tend to play it faster in "real" life, hehehe.

Pretty soon my fiddling pal and I will record it together...I'm so looking forward to that.
