Going Back to Georgie (fretless clawhammer banjo)

2012.06.25

This is a tune that Glen Smith played on fretless banjo, from the County album “Clawhammer Banjo Vol. 3″. My version has drifted off a bit since I learned it there… Sounds like it’s in the “Oh! Susanna” family. Tuning is gDGBD, a whole tone or so low.
