Notes: I Wish You Knew is a classic by Jim and Jesse and the Virginia Boys, with a stellar banjo break by the great Allen Shelton. The break contains ones of Shelton's signature licks, in measure 13, and it illustrates his renowned bouncy style, as can be seen in measures 4 through 7. If you listen to the original recording by Jim and Jesse, you will hear lots of Shelton's tasty backup, including licks influenced by the pedal steel, which also show up in Bill Keith's playing. Jim and Jesse recorded it in the key of B, and so my tab is in B.
