As soon as I heard Special Consensus' version of this song I knew I had to learn Greg Cahill's break to it. The perfect example of good taste in banjo playing. I really like that last measure of the tag right before the vocal starts .Watch out for the dotted 1/4 note in the second line.

It should be very close to how Greg is playing it. My apologies to Greg if it's not.

thanks for the link. I tried to paste it but it wouldn't work for me.
the break so reminds me of Bill Emerson.

Ya, lots of 2 finger emphasized pinches on first 2 strings. I like the third line where he doubles up on the slides/hammers on the 3rd string with a real nice touch. Not sure, but I think that’s a Sonny lick.

I have to delete this tab and do a new one because I put one note to many in a certain measure. I will repost it

One of my favorite bands. I've known Rick Faris since he was 12 yrs old. One of the best singers in bluegrass music.
