Notes: A much better version of Washington & Lee Swing than my last, which had a lot of mistakes in it. This one is a completely banjo version, with 4 breaks, the last being a slight variation on the first. It does NOT include the second part, which is a throw-over from Don Reno's recordings of the tune (my inspiration) in which the key changes to G and the fiddle does the second part. It is in the key of C, standard G tuning. Has some funky rolls that I like to throw in there just to mess up banjo players and to make listeners say "huh?". I've always felt the timing in this tune had to be especially accurate to get it to sound good, so make sure you listen to one of Don Reno's recordings of it, as well as a jazz/western swing or marching band take on it. Has a Rhythm Guitar & Bass rhythm track. Have fun

When I try to download this song all I get is gibberish. What's up?
