love it steve. by the way the blues community in Tulsa Ok calls that song the "Deep Ellum" blues.

named after a neighborhood of "Questionable Reputation" in the 1920's. Words almost identical except for the name change.

IMHO, this is more than appropriate for this community. It's one great example of how the banjo has always been evolving in multiple directions. I'd bet the vast majority of blues lovers around the world have never heard, or even considered, the blues being played on the banjo, then fiddles and mandolins. Let the True Church roll on.
