N:What's important here is, of course, the direction of the bow rather than the actual notes.
N:But, since you have to play some notes, you might as well play these, for practice. Perhaps
N:you'd like to let an open A drone ring out while you're noting the D string. Or you might like
N:to hit the A string just on down bows, for instance. Experiment with this, and with things like
N:how much bow you use, and how much swing you give the rhythm.

T:Little Rabbit

N:This was originally two tunes - the first three parts were Little Rabbit, and the last two were
N:Rabbit Where's Your Mammy.
N:But it's also a version of John Brown's Dream, as banjo scholar Stephen Wade points out,
N:although that tune usually goes in G. I'm not sure how these pieces of information relate to
N:one another.
