I've had this one on my 'to-learn' list for several years -- and finally got around to it. Another exploration into the fingerpicking side of the banjo world. Unusual tuning -- gCGBbD .

A gory ballad, with a hauntingly beautiful melody. I had to look up the lyrics to see what it all meant, so here's a bit from Wickipedia: "John Barleycorn" is a British folksong. The character of John Barleycorn in the song is a personification of the important cereal crop barley and of the alcoholic beverages made from it, beer and whisky. In the song, John Barleycorn is represented as suffering attacks, death and indignities that correspond to the various stages of barley cultivation, such as reaping and malting."
Impressive work, Randy!

Thanks! Gory? Yes. But you can't make a nice draught of IPA without crushing a couple of grains.

My favorite album by Traffic. Very nice take on it.
