So, I think I've heard you play this using several tunings.  I like this tune but not sure what key I should learn it.  Seems to have been written in 'F'.

Play it in any key. Just grab the correctly pitched banjo

Yes, but what form are you using?  If you were playing it on a Briggs-tuned banjo, in what key are you playing it?

Eb for a Briggs banjo. F for Rice.

I have charts for all the keys, depending on which banjo I'm playing.
