Notes: This is a tune I picked up within the last 20 years and came up with an ever-evolving banjo version. I never tried to emulate any particular version of this tune nor have I tried to emulate a drop-thumb approach. My brain doesn't work like that. My approach is to simply play the tune in a Scruggs-based style which works just fine. In writing this tab I realized that I rarely play the tune the same way twice and pull from a body of licks on-the-fly as I play it. So, in this tab you will see I offer several variations for the same phrases which appear throughout the tune. This is a fun tune to play and I've noticed over the years that it's becoming more commonplace, part of a growing shared repertoire at jams and get-togethers.
