Notes: This is a nifty fiddle tune written by Tommy Jackson, the major session player on the fiddle in Nashville during the 1950s and 60s. The tune works really well on the banjo in a relatively painless melodic style. I first heard it played by Alan Munde under the title "Banjalin," on his 1977 album with Sam Bush (Together Again for the First Time). More recently I discovered an unreleased version by Bill Keith from around 1963. The first break is my own arrangement of Busy Fingers. The second break is similar to one of Alan Munde's.
