Recording on the album Benny Thomasson: Legendary Texas Fiddler


Thomasson credits authorship of this rag to Texas fiddler Matt Brown, who also wrote Done Gone. Thomasson’s version is downright insane. It starts off on a high E on the E string (an octave up). The rest of the tune is not quite so hard, but it is still difficult. It includes some pizzicato notes, and ends with an ascending triplet run (as opposed to Thomasson’s usual descending run).
