    That is one of my favorite songs, I just don`t put in all of the notes that Chris puts in, I learned the song from Flatt and Scruggs,

    I had heard that Earl adapted it from some classical song....Maybe I will look it up just see....

    Farewell Blues is a common jazz standard, apparently written in 1922....

    Thanks Doc, The point I was trying to make is that it isn`t a song that Earl Scruggs wrote like a lot of people believed.....

    I have a friend that was learning to play the banjo and she moved to California and I told her that when I seen her at a festival the next time she had better be able to play "Farewell Blues", she couldn`t though but she did give it a good try...

    Recorded by many bands, but originally done by the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, like Bugle Call Rag and Milenburg Joys (although Bill Monroe learned his version from the Hoosier Hotshots). I insist on hearing a dim chord in the 12th bar, and that's what I hear in Clayton McMichen's version from 1937 (in the key of B flat; bluegrassers do it in C).
