"Poor Benny" Performance & Discussion
 
(Banjo is tuned one full step below gCGCD)


Our recent discourse on the rhythmic possibilities of two-finger picking brought my mind back to this wonderful old song. The "waltz" picking pattern I use here is a mixture of both thumb-lead and index-lead (with the latter being mainly a plain guitar-style strum). 

I learned this song from a recording of Jerron Paxton & Frank Fairfield.
