Here's a fun Allen Shelton tune that I tabbed out many years ago. Allen had a natural bounce in his beat for sure. His sense of timing was different than anyone else back when Jim and Jesse were on top...Jack    p.s. I put the youtube link in the Title Information bar....p.s. actually this is the 3rd break by Allen on the LP

Five Foot Two

Hey Jack, I can't look right now, but does it have the ending he played on the "Shelton Special" album?
Thanks!

Jim,
Just check out the tab and you'll see that the ending Allen played on the 1st break had the same ending on every break as I remember....I gave it to BNL over 20 years ago and don't know what they ever did with it...Jack

Hi Jim,
I haven't heard that LP for years but I just went to youtube and the same ending break appears in every break Allen did with the song...Jack    p.s. I forgot how compelling a player Allen was. I got to meet him with my Brother Derek years ago and he was fantastic and modest about it all. He apparently wasn't treated all that well by certain bands back then...Jack    p.s. Jim, you play some pretty great banjo yourself...

Jack,

I had to look it up, but now know it's not the same song I'd thought it was: the Willis Bros' "Six Foot Two By Four," haha. Tells of a  guys jealous wife who was 5'2".

I wasn't familiar with this one, but am gonna give it a test drive. Thanks very much!

Jack, Thanks so much for the kind words. Allen was a hero of mine for sure. One of the first banjo players I saw "live". He was such a gentleman.
