Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

From Bill Keith arrangement, first take, no warm-up and a banjo I have never played before. RK77 Elite that was visiting for the day. I started by playing the B part. The beginning of the tune is around 23 seconds in. Bought the Grasstrax package and used the 90 bpm cut. Should of had it louder not realizing how powerful the RK was.

If you want to vamp along it's open G tuning

note: there is a lead-in of two 8th notes at the 25 second mark before the down beat of the first G measure of the A Part. That's the way the tab indicates it is to be played.

A Part 2X in a row: /G,G/G,G/G,G/D,G/G,G/G,G/G,C/D,G/
B Part 2X in a row: /G,G/G,G/C,C/C,C/G,G/G,G/G,C/D,G/

Yikes. Sounding very mechanical. Gotta let go and put in some feel and fun. But not bounce. That doesn't fit with this tune.
