    Default Can someone ID this mandolin tune for me?

    I've heard this tune a bit lately - I'm sure I used to know the name, but it's gone from my old head!

    Can someone ID it for me?

    Thanks,
    Bazz.

    For anyone unfamiliar with him, DeFord Bailey gets some mention in the Ken Burn's documentary on country music.
    "Bargain instruments are no bargains if you can't play them". These are the words of J. Garber.
