    This week's winner is Road to Columbus, which was submitted as a Bluegrass tune.

    You know those Bluegrass tunes, I'm usually pretty bad at finding notation...so any help will be appreciated! Here are some:

    Mandolin tab and notation from Old-Time Music, Traditional Music Library

    Standard Notation

    Here's a link to when Old Sausage ran this tune as an 'Other Tune'. There's also a link to some tab and even an abc file!

    Nicely played, luurtie! I'm still working out my version and am getting pretty close. Your breaks are full of good ideas and I think I might just borrow a few of your licks to fill out mine a bit more. Thanks for posting!

    Finally made some time today to record the Road To Columbus. The mandolin is my old Kentucky Km600 and the guitar is a Simon & Patrick dreadnought.

    Thanks luurtie. I think learning the Irish tunes has changed my style forever. The SAW group is one big melting pot of musical styles and it's one of the reasons it is so successful!
