This is an extremely slick version of this classic gospel tune in the key of C. If I were to play a solo for this song on someone’s record, this is what I’d play. It’s not too fast, but advanced because of all the licks. Enjoy!

In the group I play in we do this song in G. I used to play the banjo in our group but desperately needed a mandolin player so I decided to learn the mandolin. Is this movable to another key? Or is there a closed position version in the works?

I figured it out! I forgot that I could just move everything down one string to get the key of G!
