Notes: Dock Boggs' "Sugar Baby", from his original 1927 recording. This was his first recording. Tuning is G-modal, though Dock uses it for the key of D. The guitar accompaniment is in D-major, which sounds really cool against the modal banjo melody. A very easy piece with only one short, simple roll. Literal tuning is f#C#F#BC#, which is G-modal (gDGCD) down a half-step.
