If I counted correctly, this is the 97th audio recording of CMB posted on BHO--not counting the dozen or more backup tracks.Not only did Stanley compose a tune that grabs you, but it works for both clawhammer and bluegrass picking. Some other reasons likely exist for its wide appeal. There's hardly a need for another mp3 of the tune here. However I'm hoping that clawhammer versions are way under half of the postings, and I hope that my version may be a bid different from other CW takes. I forgot to capo to A, so the song is in G modal on a 12' tubaphone with a 5-string repro neck.

Sounds like front porch music, but ever so professional!

Pine and Janet, Thanks ever so much! I wish I could play like this too. It took me 7 stabs at recording to get this maybe pro sounding version.

Thanks! Ralph's tune adapts well to oldtime sawmill banjo.
