BANGING BREAKDOWN. AKA and see "John Greer's Tune." Old-Time, Breakdown. C banjo tuning. Learned, like many of his tunes, from a neighbor, John Greer, by North Carolina musician Hobart Smith. The original title may have been lost, for Smith's recording company lists the tune as "John Greer's Tune," perhaps a mishearing, for Smith is hear to announce the "John Greer Tune" on the cut.

Recorded sources: Atlantic Records LP 1350, Hobart Smith - "American Folk Songs For Chilren." Flying Fish FF 70453, Ward - "Dancing Home" (1990. Learned from Hobart Smith via Fleming Brown). Folk Legacy Records FSA-17, Hobart Smith - "America's Greatest Folk Instrumentalist" (appears as las tune in "Banjo Group 1").
