Notes: This old swing standard really sounds good when played at an up tempo speed. It is from the playing of Bill Peck, a great banjo player in Los Angeles. I tabbed out his playing as best I could with his permission. Hope you enjoy playing it as much as I do. It is in the key of D played in G tuning with the 5th string tuned up to A. I also uploaded the Lead Sheet for the chords.
