David Holt was Doc Watson’s traveling companion and musical partner for several years - together they won a Grammy for their 3-CD set “Legacy.” Here, David teaches a version of a song that Doc started out playing on the street and that later became a regular part of his repertoire. "This is the one that brought in all the money,” Doc told him. David says: “It’s about as cool a tune as you can get out of four or five notes.” It’s played clawhammer style with lots of hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides. Part 2 is an instrumental that adds some variety. Techniques include a double pull-off and a double-thumb roll from G to E minor that gives it a special mountain sound.
