Notes: Ole Liza Jane is a traditional nonsense song that Don Stover recorded as an instrumental. You can hear the lyrics in Merle Travis’s version on youtube. The tablature is my interpretation of Stover’s arrangement on the banjo. The first break is pretty close to Stover’s, whereas the second veers off a bit into modest improvisation. In particular, the B part of the second break is more faithful to Travis’s vocal than to Stover’s B part on the banjo. Stover plays OLJ at breakneck speed, and his recording features a fine mandolin break by David Grisman. You can hear me playing it on a practice tape from some years ago, on the media section of my BHO webpage:https://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=9860&archived=
