Interesting. I have been a Boogie fan since childhood listening to an older sister play it on Piano. A couple months ago I ran across this Mandolin version and downloaded it from Freegal Music library. A clean copy , little better than this utube one. Spotify has it also. Now, looking for the tabs.Arthur Smith's "Mandolin Boogie"
In 1951 when Bill Monroe went into the studio at Decca to cut "Rawhide" another well know guitar picker went into MGM's studio to cut "Mandolin Boogie". Charlotte, NC native Arthur Smith known for his famous 1948 hit recording of "Guitar Boogie" wanted to see if he could get another hit with the mandolin this time. It bombed and faded quickly into obsurity but today if you listen to it he was doing some rather innovative mandolin picking on this take off from his guitar boogie. He was playing his brand new 1951 Gibson F12 and you will note it rings like bells in this recording as taken from the original 78RPM. A few years later in 1955 he would go back to MGM studios to cut a little banjo tune that featured Smith on tenor banjo and Don Reno on 5 string bluegrass banjo. They called it "Fuedin' Banjos. About a decade later an up and coming bluegrass band called the Dillards would record it as "Duelin' Banjos" but this time using a banjo and a mandolin. And then in 1972 another rather unknown banjo picker, Eric Weisberg would cut the same tune between a banjo and a guitar and use it in a soundtrack to a movie "Deliverance" The rest we say is history. Arthur is still living today in Charlotte at a retirement home at age 90.
