I like your choice Chuck3, it has that ol time flavor and is about the tune as opposed to the performance. Man her mando sounds good!

Those are both very nice versions of SH. It seems to be one of Sharon Gilchrist's go-to tunes and she plays it a lot and does a nice job on it too.

I love to play the tune also because it is so "groovy".

My favorite mandolin version is this one with Mike Compton:

If you do not know the tune and would like a nice video for learning it this "Mike on the mandolin" version is great --it gives the basics of the tune then you can take it from there with slides etc:

But then listen to this crazy mesmerizing version on fiddle by Betse Ellis of the Wilders:

It is kinda groovy. Played the A part along with SG and kept slipping into Cattle in the Cane

Nice!

The Betse Ellis version put me to sleep.

Exactly the one I was going to post! I really love how they shift the mood as the tune progresses.

Really interesting version -- you have to wait for it. But nice mando work...

And this is a nice version kind of old time style -- no mando though. When SH gets bluegrassed I think that it often loses some its charm -- played too fast?
