We’ve got a new tune this week by request: Ginseng Sullivan by Norman Blake. This is truly a flatpicking classic. Norman recorded it on his record Back Home in Sulpher Springs (which you should listen to if you haven’t already). The chorus is of particular interest - it changes keys for just a second but resolves in a really pleasing and intuitive, if also weird, way. I really enjoy singing this song.
Give it a try!
