I used a little bit different tuning on the banjo in that I had the fifth string tuned at a "B" 1 octave higher than the open 2nd string. I composed this tune in 1991. It's been a favorite fiddle tune of mine because it's a riot to play up to speed. lol

Great tune Fred, and nicely played ! It's got a really nice Rondney Miller Contra sound to me,

Only other time i've heard of Birch trees referred to as Birks is in "The Birks Of Aberfeldy" by Robert Burns

Thank You Pete. I checked out Rodney Miller and I like his music. I also have read some of Robert Burns' poetry and songs including the one you cited. A very clever man, indeed! Thanks, again. Fred
