Notes: A bluegrass classic, written by Lester Flatt and first recorded by him with Bill Monroe and the Blue Grass Boys (including, of course, Earl Scruggs). I pulled the first break off a radio recording of Flatt and Scruggs from 1957. The second break is more improvisational, including a Keith-ish melodic sequence, and the third break is a variation on the Scruggs approach and sticks to the melody. This was perhaps the first tune I worked out on my own, in the early 1960s, back before there were personal computers, smart phones, or Schitt’s Creek.
