Notes: Source is "The Phillips Collection of Traditional American Fiddle Tunes". the A-part is in d-major, and the B-part is in a-mixolydian. Ken Perlman has a beautiful version in double-c tuning in his book "Melodic Clawhammer Banjo", capo-ed up two frets. This was my attempt to come up with an arrangement in standard open-g tuning, with the minor exception of putting in the 5th string high g-drone to a high-a. This can be accomplished quickly in a session, with for example a railroad spike.
