    What G&D songs do you do on banjo? I'm just learning, so I'm trying to pick out Baby and Fly in G, but I would like to learn Hard Times, Rock of Ages and Winter's Come and Gone (which I know is played on guitar, but I think she wrote it on banjo?)

    Have learnt Hard Times with capo on 6 which sounds great. have to drop it to 5 for my buddy Todd who plays fiddle. Six White Horses is an easy pick, although I wish I could play harp. My First Lover would be a good one to play, as well as the song you mentioned jane. Would love to know what's goind on with One Morning.

    I'm struggling with that D in Hard Times. Where do you pick across, Jason? Root shape? I can't quite get it nice. Would like to do "Winter", anyone working on that?

    and yes, One Morning. Sawmill, like Rock of Ages (which sounds just like Shady Grove to me), but afterr that I don't know where to go.
