Tom Adams-style 3-finger playing. Key of G, G tuning gDGBD
Originally recorded by Grandpa Jones in 1947 for King Records - with the banjo played in the clawhammer style - the song is a natural for the 3-finger style and is a popular number at many bluegrass jams. The melody of this song is widely interpreted, often with the singer at a jam choosing to forego the high notes, but this banjo tab follows the melody as sung by Grandpa Jones in his many recordings and performances of "Mountain Dew".
