Maybe this is sacreligious but I appreciate it when we explore and try a tune that very well could've been floating around in the head of a period banjoist but not necessarily in the era's banjo tutorials.

Good find, Paul.

Thanks Al. Mark Weems turned me on to it a few years ago.  The book is a gem.

I sounds awfully familiar.  Seems like I must have it somewhere.  Is it online?  Downloadable?

Thanks, Paul.  I don't recognize that as one I have but as soon as I return from taking my dad to dialysis, I'll begin using the snip tool to create a book and get it printed and bound.
