A challenging piece indeed. Well done, Lew!

Thanks, Janet. If you looked at the post on this song in the Sound Off forum, you know that I cheated some and finally gave up in trying to play this as it should be. Of course, you need a brass band to play it as it should be.

Splendid! No need for a brass band when the banjo playing is as good as this :)

Thanks Debs! It took me a while to get this much of the tune worked out. Persistence helps! The tune really could use a mando or uke to play some of the little twiddly bits, but I think the banjo gets the basic idea of the song expressed.
