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

For the Tune of the Week, 2/28/14, this version is mostly from Bigfoot Stringband and Rhys Jones' fiddling. He based it on Robert Sykes (1914-1994). It's a much bluesier Black Eyed Susie than I've ever heard and I've been curious about it, so TOTW has again provided me a good learning platform. Tune in, if you haven't! I'm playing a very lightweight banjo with nylgut strings.

Nice and bluesy version of a usually non-bluesy happy tune!
