When I first heard this tune off Paul Brown's album "Red Clay Country" (highly recommended!), I couldn't rest until I learned it. The banjo is fingerpicked (sans picks) in the tuninig d#A#D#A#C. My brother Rob is on guitar and harmony vocals.

What a great.....well.....lazy feel to this song. The tuning is just so back home and inviting and you vocal is matched just right. Loved it.

Just great. I love the easy, lazy (!) rolling cadence you're getting here. Very well played.

My goodness - I've got a gal lives by the road, her knees are buckled and legs are bowed! They don't write em like that anymore.  GREAT picking and singing and particularly I like the finishing lick with the lazy triplets.
