Borchelt's worried he is going to be locked out any day now -- ;-) -- so we are putting tunes up on my page for awhile. This is our "take" on the Henry Reed version of this old tune. Ken Perlman and Alan Jabbour do a nice rendition of it on their Southern Summits CD.

So you're Dons CH guy. Love your combo, and visit Dons page regularly.  Nice job on this tune indeed.

Very nice guys. I'm working on my double-D tuning, Ed, and the more traditional clawhammer, as against my usual wild frailing. Can't say it comes easily, though.

Hi Jack-

Good to hear from you.  Just remember the 4-beat - "bump--a--dit--ty".
Just keep at it, and it'll sink-in eventually.

I hope you two are going to do some more. You are both great players, but somehow you make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. The result is so...musical!
