Notes: This gem was written by Bill Monroe, who reportedly told Lamar Grier, his banjo player in the mid-1960s, "This will be a good tune for you." Grier apparently did not like CtC, because it is played at a loping pace slower than most banjo instrumentals and does not employ any of the standard banjo rolls or licks. I think it can be a fine tune for the banjo, and my tablature was influenced by Butch Robins's outstanding arrangement, particularly the DTN break.
