A version of this traditional tune on a fretless bowl-back banjo tuned down to B.

I realize that I play this 'straight' and I'm working on swinging it properly, but I think it sounds much more ominous this way.

Man, this is great. It reminds me of hanging out with old timers in western Virginia. After playing bluegrass and drinking all day they'd reminisce about the songs their dads and grand dads used to play and that's when the music got really good.

This sounds just like it! Thanks for the awesomeness and bringing back some memories.
