I've been working on this tune for almost a week. I'm finally getting there, and I can play it much better when the recorder isn't turned on.
It's a pretty little waltz written by Dawn Petty, of Birdseye, Kansas. It sounds old, but it's not.
It's played on a Chuck Lee Prairieville banjo (with no tone ring), strung with nylon strings. Standard G tuning, capo at the 2nd fret. These chords work, but they are a note lower than the banjo:
G// Bm// Em// G// G// G// D// D// D// Am// D// D// D// D7/ G// G// G// Bm// Em// G// G// G7// C// C// G// A7// D// E7// A7// D// G// G//
It even has words. Listen to a snippet sung by Judy Coder here.
