Here's a bluegrass favourite of mine, though I have never done a video of it.

I wanted to be sitting on the porch in a rocking chair to record it, but it was not to be.

You find this arrangement in my bluegrass ebook.

Thanks for sharing this one Ken, what a great tune. It brings back fond memories of when my brother and I used to rip into it (guitar & banjo) at our local bluegrass society meetings. Sweet picking as usual too mate, loved it.

Thanks, Ken. Enjoyed your video a lot. It reminds me of my grandpa who was an old-time fiddler. He would also play this on his piano in a honky-tonk style.

Yes, I used to play this on guitar too. I love Norman Blake's cross-picked version.

Thanks very much.

No, it wasn't. it was my faithful Kiwaya KTS-4. It is a lovely uke. Very loud and ultra responsive.
