    Tryin' to work on more thumb lead styles lately so I decided to work on this ol' standard. Can't quite play it like Leadbelly or Maybelle so I came up with this instead.

      Just a generic raggy thing on a cheap Dean 6 string banjo. Action's really high. I have a hard time playin' this thing, but it sounds okay if I mute it well enough.
