Notes: This is my five string banjo interpretation of Mother Maybelle's guitar break on the Carter Family's My Dixie Darling, recorded in June, 1936 for Decca Records. Note the ghost hammers- this involves hammering on the 4th string, 2nd fret with the left hand without picking it first with the right hand. There is also some Reno style single string phrasing on the D chord.

Great arrangement Don. I was looking for a version in the key of D.
