    I vote for slow and with a repeat of the A part. I think I'd call it AAB with the repeat and AB without the repeat. The B part is the same in both cases where it tags with the second half of an A...

    I lived Auburn in the Late 90s. At that time there was a weekly bluegrass and gospel jam at a church in Loachapoka. I hope it is still active. Good Luck!

    That was the first thing I noticed because it looks exactly like my mandolin. Only difference I see is that mine has gold hardware. I'd put $ on - a Weber Bitterroot custom with gloss and faded...
