That sure rolls along nicely Tim. I really like the backbeat feel.

Thanks Ian. I slowed it down just a tad, and tried to make the written rests actuallt happen. Subtle little difference.

Great song. I was waching the discussion at the Hangout the other day on the Stroke/Clawhammer topic (they are always entertaining) and thought of that song as a good example of Stroke style, but for the life of me I could not remeber the name of it. And then there you were and posted it. Saved me the time of going through the whole Briggs book and trying to figure out which one it was. Thanks

Did you see the comment..."That's Clawhammer"?

I did not hink so...but oh well,

Comment by Tim Twiss on January 30, 2013 at 4:27pm

I meant, I did not think it was clawhammer.

With some of the folks over there I think I could put a pickup on my banjo, run it through a distortion pedal, crank up the phazer and overdrive on the amp, play Jimi Hendricks's version of The Star Spangled Banner, and they would still say "it's just clawhammer".

Also, I would have spent a long time looking for it in the Briggs book since it is in the Buckley 1860 Book.

It's definitely NOT clawhammer.  Plenty of doofs around to say otherwise.

(Yikes Tim, how can you do all those notes so fast and accurately?!?)

I studied "Early Banjo Primer"...by ME ( ha ha )
