Here is a beautiful arrangement of this Scruggs Classic originally tabbed by Thierry Shoysman. Thierry is a Bill Keith protege and I helped put in some stuff and bends for Thierry. Enjoy this beauty...Jack

Thanks again, Jack. I always loved this break, especially the little nod to Nola at the end of the first break. Very cool.

Bill used the quote from Nola only one time with Bill Monroe. On hearing it, Monroe was so upset that he cut the song short laugh

Thanks, Howey. I've never heard that story before. I got to work with Bill at a festival He did seem somewhat opinionated! Miss both Bill and "Brad".

I vaguely remember a one-on-one setting with Bill Keith in which I asked him to play Footprints. It's quite possible that he told me the story then. Either that, or I heard him tell it some other time. He must have told it to many banjo players!
