For enthusiasts of early banjo
From Green 1865.....here is a start to transcribing the piece to TAB.
I thought we decided that D# was a misprint. (I actually always liked it.)
Oh man...what a memory. ha ha
What Carl and I are talking about here......is an error, which we went round and round about years ago. If you notice in the original, the key signature is 4 sharps....indicating E major. The next three lines have 3 sharps...indicating a major. This has great effect upon that very first phrase with the D#. Joe Ayers played it literally on his recording, but it is obviously a typo. SO......tabbers beware...it is good to investigate the original source.
Make my "4" a "3"
It is how I played it......also cross reference any other version of this tune. That is the way you check it.
WHOOPS...looking at the wrong Hog song. No matter...this one is good too.
Okay, now keep going.
