Nice fingering. This one brings back memories for me. My old fiddler buddy Al would crank this out in the key of X ( F or Bb ) and I'd stomp around on the piano searching for all those changes while he was going a million miles an hour. He would have loved to hear these minstrel banjos.

Nice version Tim!  That tune floats between F and D in Ontario too - just to wake up the accompanists I guess.

Thank you Bell 1 and Bell2. I'm cleaning up my youtube site, and ran across this one.
