Can you make a Video for the ending of this Song, or maybe Tab it?🙈

Jim Ajello says:

Brandon, great performance as well explanation of this gem. Though not written by Doc. Watson it is very open to many rhythm beats. Lots of open canvas for off beat, back beat, cord triads & single note finger styles melody lines intervals. Great version, great instruction & thank you for passing on this great song for generations to come.🎼👌
