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

Learned from the playing of Jim Reed who says he learned it as a boy from his father. It's not like Stringbean's version, but when I first heard it I knew I wanted to learn Jim's way. Jim picks it, I clawhammer, and, as Jim tells in his interview with Paul Roberts, his dad played this clawhammer style, too, on a beautiful old Bacon banjo that Jim snuck and played.

Yes, Rick, double C. I can tab it if you'd like to learn it, too.

Tasteful and pretty... and i think The Bean would have been cool with this version:-)

Appreciate the tab offer Janet, but don't bother. If I get to it I'll try it by ear and yell out if I need help :'). Thanks.

Thanks, Beat! Have you listened to Jim Reed's videos? If you go to his homepage, you'll see there are MANY and they're equally great!
