    I can't readily find notation or tab.... can anyone help me?

    I always meant to learn how to play this song. It's just a 12 bar blues and I've played it for many years when the banjo player asked to do it. It wasn't until this week that I actually figured out the melody go figure! (Oh, there was going to be video showing me playing the mandolin, however, my video skills are sadly lacking this week... unless you want a long video of a microphone that is!) I played all the instruments on this one too.

    That's so cool, Michael. Your guitar and mandolin interact in such a fun way, it's hard to imagine this being played in separate tracks. The melody reminds me a little of Heavy Traffic Ahead.

    Here is quick version of this tune. I threw this together in between trips for the boys spring break. I wish I could get together with Mr. Pastucha on this one. He simply ate this tune up!!
