Clear noting there! What was your learning source for the tune?

Hi Janet, it's from Miles Krassen's "Clawhammer Banjo". I ysed this tune to learn drop-thumbing. Thank you for your kind words. You are always so positive on the forum to everyone and I like that.

Thanks, Groover. My mindset is of a veteran first-grade teacher's -- I believe what I feel and say about somebody's playing. I think it's great that you're using the same book I used to learn banjo. Since the 70's I'm still just as fond of Southern Mountain music, but I like its Celtic roots just as much.

There's a BHO member, Bob Blanham, who recorded Miles Krassen's whole book's worth of clawhammer tabs. Old Jack Gillie is among them. I wish it were available when I was learning....I don't know if this link will work, but here it is: banjohangout.org/myhangout/mus...?ID=45862

Thanks for pointing me to Bob's recordings! I listened to the other tunes I can play from the book and that will be very helpful. The Miles Krassen book was given to me by a lifelong friend of Derroll Adams.
