Shaking Down the Acorns
Who are these guys? Thaey are good. Love that banjo run.
This is A modal tune which means it has a G chord. The banjo can play in A modal tuning. There are A and B parts. Some folks play it square, as in two of each, but most folks play A three times.

Not to be confused with...

- Hogs Picking up Acorns. That comes after you shake them down.
- Shuckin the Bush [utoob]. See the Fiddlin' Early White CD for a great version. Shuckin is an unlikely way to find acorns.
- Rattle Down the Acorns [Iron Leg Stringband on utoob]. Ok, even I'm confused.
