Why is it that almost all of my favorite tunes have a 'head tap' in them? ;-)

This was probably the first classic-banjo tune I ever encountered. When I first took up the banjo in the late '70's, I bought Tony Trischka's "Banjo Song Book" which had "Yankee Land" in it...but I was a beginner and didn't understand it.

About 10 yrs later, I bought Clarke Buehling's "Buehling Banjos" cassette tape (which has YL) and just about wore it out (I transferred it to mp3 and still listen to it on my ipod nano).

Well done, Marc et père! Your father's delightful piano work really enhances this tune.

This is a piece of genuine, living ragtime ART!

Thx , fellows ; i play on my CE / XX et i have changed some fingerings since the later version;

Once more , do not hesitate to change your fingerings if you have problems somewhere sometimes . You will need sometime to get comfortable with the news Fgs , to not hesitate between the new  & old ones and when , at some point , you will be , the tune will be easier to play
