Notes: On 14 February 1962, the Osborne Brothers recorded Big Ben (with drums!), an instrumental written by their guitar player, Benny Birchfield. Sonny Osborne and Birchfield played twin banjos on the opening and closing breaks, and each took a solo break as well, of course interspersed with mandolin breaks by Bobby Osborne -- but I can report that there were no drum breaks. My arrangement captures the feel of the original recording, without attempting to be note-for-note, and without the mandolin breaks.
