That's a lovely version Dusty.  I didn't know the tune had 3 parts.  I can't actually remember where I picked up the 2 part version I play?  I think it was from listening to Nick my banjo playing friend playing it.  As Jan says, it is a very haunting tune.

Thanks, Rob and Gail.

Rob, I only play the song once through (there are 3 parts), so you're right it should be longer. I have a tendency to jump the gun and post a song as soon as I've learned it, rather than waiting until I have a more formal arrangement fully in hand. I think I'm eventually going to do this one at least twice through, the first one nice and slow and then the second one much faster.  But stop your kidding; this is not the standard; there are so many great versoins of this tune.

That's a great rendition, even tho' it's too short!  I've been trying this morning to get something that sounds 1/2 as good by retuning.  Haven't found it yet. Probably because this one is the standard to which I'm aspiring.

Thanks, David. There are a few different ways to play this one.  They all either use a capo or a minor tuning.

Pretty neat Dusty, trying to follow looking at Helen Johnson arrangement in DAD. Really nice job.

Thanks, Patty.  I'm in DAA with a capo and lots of drones.  Definitely not my comfort zone.
