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

John Salyer of Kentucky is credited most with this song. Pete Sutherland's slow version on "Banjo Gathering" inspired me to learn it, listening both to his 3-finger picking and the original fiddle recording of Salyer in 1940. Thus I'm playing it slow first, then fast; picking, then clawhammer.

Love this one Janet... like all the pauses... then the tempo change... may have to learn this one, down the road. Cheers!

Thanks much. It's one of those rare ones I've tried combining 3-finger with clawhammer.
