Notes: Sandy Boys is a great old-timey tune associated with the playing of a renowned fiddler from West Virginia, Edden Hammons. But its origins are probably in the minstrel shows of the 19th century. I became familiar with the tune from a tab that Don Borchelt posted on his web page (http://www.banjr.com/tablatures.htm) some time ago, and I have since encountered it in jams. The version I have posted here is very much for the bluegrass banjo, with both Scruggs-ish and melodic elements.
