Genre: Bluegrass / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

Here's a bit of an Earl Scruggs classic for the old-time Tune of the Week, 6/16/19. I've always thought it's fine to play in clawhammer style whatever suits me, though others may differ in opinion. The Dm tuning (aDFAD) gives this tune flavor and then it jumps suddenly to a major chord. Great composition!

Don't think I ever heard a CH version. It works nicely. Well played. You mean it jumps to a major, yes?

Yes, Rick. I’ll edit it. Thanks.

I remember working up this one from the black Earl bible...and thought it was fine. When I finally heard the recording sometime later...well image Homer Simpson smacking his forehead with “D’oh!”. Sounds great as clawhammer style!
