Does anyone have Bill Keith's Tab of this tune? I figured it out using the record, but I don't want to post it to the Tab Library if it is the same thing that is being sold by Bill's family and putting money into the Banjo Music Industry. Check out my tab if you have it and let me know if it is the same thing as Bill's. If his only has the first break then mine (with both breaks) would be enough in my mind to warrant including it in the Tab Library, but the difference in the 6th measure where I think Bill probably played it with a big stretch from the 1st to 5th frets on the 1st and 3rd strings wouldn't. Thanks. Take a look:

This one has been around for sometime Mike. Bennett Sullivan has a tab with all Keith breaks as I recall. I tabbed this thing out many moons ago...Nice song if not a bit boring. It is great Bill Keith though...Jack p.s. lots of nifty scales and modes in this one...

well, I certainly don't find it boring. It's kind of snappy. I don't mind if other's have tabbed it, it would only bother me if it is the same as either one already (permanently) in the Tab Library, or available for purchase in a tab book that is still in print. And I mean the "same" as I define it in the OP. To me, out of print is fair game. Thanks

Ha,
Well let's just say I prefer Bill's Nola, or many of his other tunes over this one. I shouldn't have said "boring" oops....Just a bit repetitive to my ear....Jack

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion Jack, as long as it doesn't contradict mine. wink

I always thought it to be sort of old ragtime ,,,kinda like Dill Pickle Rag. Maybe influenced by Bill’s previous 4 string days.

Maybe it was influenced by his 4 string days, he has a few Jazzy tunes in his reportoire...Caravan, You Came a Long Way From St. Louis, Night in Tunisia...etc...
