Notes: This is my version of Fred Cockerham's Roustabout. Fred played it in drop C tuning (gCGBD), tuned up to steps to (aDAC#E) and in the key of G (with a Mixolydian flavor). In this tab I tuned to drop C and capoed at second fret. The guitar accompaniment is in the key of A without capo. There are at least three recordings of this tune (County Records Clawhammer Banjo and two from Field Recordings. It is played a little different on each recording, and also varies a lot in the same recording.
