Notes: This is a Québécois tune, written in the 1930s by Joe Bouchard [no - not the Blue Oyster Cult bassist, but a Joséph Bouchard, of Quebec] that I thought could benefit from a banjo arrangement. I originally thought it was a Cajun tune, as I first heard it by Steve Riley and the Mamou Playboys on their fantastic album "Trace of Time". This arrangement is a transcription (more or less) of Dave Greeley's 1st fiddle solo from that recording. It's not terrifically easy but is attainable - and it sounds great when you get it up and running! Have fun.
