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

This was one of Doc Watson's signature tunes, which he elegantly fingerpicked on guitar. It was originally recorded by the Delmore Brothers in 1933 as Big River Blues. Ed Britt is playing clawhammer style in double C, capoed on the 2nd fret, and doing the singing, while I'm fingerpicking in open D.

Hey there, pal! Nice one! I do this on the banjo in Graveyard tuning!
What a fun homage to the guy!

Fine as a Sam Adams on a warm day by the river.

Great to hear a version with 2 banjos. Never heard Ed sing before either - good job by both of you.
