Notes: This is Curly Ray Klein's break in the Ralph Stanley Live in Japan Album. The only thing that would make it expert is trying to play up to the speed of Curly Ray Klein.

Notes: At the end of the 80's I used to ‘sit in’ with Fishbach and Kirby which became 29 Strings at Durty Nellies in Palatine IL. They asked me to learn the fiddle brake to this song. I half speeded it on a Tandberg Tape recorder and got it note for note. In the song John Denver's telling you he is just a simple country bumpkin but there is an extra beat in measures 6 and 14. Once you get the basic tune down you will want to double stop on the open A or E string, which ever is not being used to play the melody line.
