Notes: Here are the takes on this classic Bill Monroe tune by two great banjo players, Noam Pikelny and Bill Keith. Pikelny's version is from the album "Noam Pikelny Plays Kenny Baker Plays Bill Monroe," and it is faithful to Baker's version on fiddle. I have included two of his interesting variations on the B part that mirror Monroe's composition. Keith's version is from "The Grass is Greener," and it is less tied to the fiddle break. It's more interpretive, if not downright surreal. Capo up 2 to play in A.
