Not especially a banjo tune, but a pretty tune just the same ~

It is a pretty tune and I play it. But nowhere near a pretty sounding as your version. Thanks for sharing this and the other tunes you do.

Great! I like the way you transition into the next go-round (at 0:07 & 0:08) without pausing on the tonic note - it propels the tune forward.
I play it capo’d at 2 , out of C position. I’ll see if I can steal that transition lick if you don’t mind, Butch.

chuckv97 I don't remember if we got to play this one together at one of Drew's jams. I like to play it without a capo so I can let the low D string sustain at the end of the run. It is a great tune.

Hi Jim,,not sure if I knew how to play it last year, even as a fake job. I just worked it up lately. I do like the low D note but in this one I can get away with the second string tonic. I don’t play much melodic style , maybe 3 fiddle tunes,,I worked up SAR in Scruggs-y style as I did for Whisky BB, Bill Cheathum, Big Sciatica (!) , Salt Spring, and a few others. I find if I go in the ditch with'em it's easier for me to improvise in Scruggs style to get back on track. 
Wish I had Butch's chops !

Well, buckaroos and buckarettes, it  sure as HdevilLL  sounds like a banjo tune, the way Mr. Robinson plays it!
