After the marvelous version done by Garcia and Grissman on "Not for Kids Only". 5-string banjo, but just strummed and no fifth string used.

Cool! I first heard this on Garcia and Grisman Old Timey Songs for Children. I always liked it. Good singing you do on it too. So... sounds like you are maybe using a guitar pick, like a plectrum?

@championofnorthhuron I'm using my middle fingernail, strumming up and down with it. I can do this because I have built it up with fiberglass and superglue for my clawhammer playing. It's pretty sturdy, but I've added an extra layer of fiberglass while learning this tune because a lot of strumming causes visible wear to the edge that I strum with. Thank you for the kind words--I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Way to go @WayneConrad!
Now I know where to come and find you if those Teddy Bears take off with you again!
Great to hear you this morning! Thanks so much!
