    Default Tumbling Tumbleweeds

    The story behind this is that I love this old Sons of The Pioneers tune, especially when folk sing it with killer harmonies. I love the version The Whites did way back when (Buck White & The Down Home Folks at Randy Woods Old Time Picking Parlor, 1977), with their blood harmonies and Buck's tasty mandolin solo.

    So I tried to learn Buck's solo, then made a midi backing track to practice to. And yesterday, I decided to try and play the song through, incorporating some of Buck's runs near the end. I posted this over in SAW group, hoping some others will also work up a version or two that I can steal from
