Learned it from Arkansas fiddler, Cotton Combs, back in the 70's. Played on a cheap Chinese Guarnerius with a penny stuck on top just behind the bridge to tone it down a little for recording.

That was the best -- and fastest -- version of that tune that I ever heard!

Another great tune and another great rendition of it.

I think - if memory serves - Paul Warren recorded this one with Flatt & Scruggs many years ago.  Is that right?

Great tune - Great Fiddlin' !!!

You are right.  This is a tune that we should hear more of.  It's a tune that I need to learn.

You guys are very kind. I don't know about Paul Warren recording this. He probably did. The only recording I have is by the New Lost City Ramblers from long ago.

Thanks again!......Glenn

Really a nice tune, Glenn, and you play it well.

I am going to try my best to help make it better known. (Now, where's my slowdowner?)
