Notes: This is a note for note transcription of how Bill Keith played this tune at the Midwest Banjo Camp, 2013. YouTube link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tlHoWnLzIAY Note that this version is slightly different than the version included in my "Medley" with the Bourree by Bach. A few lines have simple, but useful alterations, to grab the ear of someone paying attention. The tab is written such that you can follow along with the recording. Chords are very basic. Adjust settings so that chords are displayed as letter names only, tab is displayed at 4 bars per line, and view is scaled to 16th notes. Bill Keith's left hand fingerings are included, but may be considered unusual or difficult by some. Other fingerings are possible and might be preferable by players with different sized hands and/or banjo necks. Bill remarks "I can remember the title sometimes," but never states it in the linked video given above.
