St. Anne, patron saint of lost causes...Perfect for banjo players! Just kidding:) This is a fun, somewhat impressionistic Scruggs adaptation of this tune. It doesn't capture the melody exactly(common in Scruggs playing) but once you start putting it all together the melody washes over you and the listener just the same. We're also using open strings and playing slightly up the neck out of open D in a way that Earl did not. However, the right hand, and the styling of the licks is very true to Scruggs. This one will open up your mind to some new possibilities playing out of open D. Enjoy :)
