I learned this tune from Bob Carlin at Midwest Banjo Camp back in June. It seems a lot of clawhammer players who play this one learned it from Bob, either at one of his workshops or from his fine recording of the tune on Banging and Sawing. He’s an excellent teacher with a huge amount of knowledge and stories about old time music and players.
I’m playing the tune in standard G tuning – gDGBD (in other words the banjo is tuned to an open G chord). The banjo here is a Nechville Atlas, my first good banjo.
