Comments:

This bluegrass standard is from Goforth’s bluegrass period. In the recording, he played the tune five times through at breakneck speed, introducing variations in each repetition. I recommend the second time through the tune for learning it. A significant chordal variation is introduced in the A part the fourth time through.
