Listen on:

This song is a classic. There's a lot of space in the melody. The banjo can fit right in there. It's also a great study in the chord scale. The chords move up a step at a time and you can really see how they connect on the fret board. This version focuses on the closed chord position you might know as the G shape. This shape has the root of the chord on the wound D string.
