Man of Constant Sorrow Banjo Recording

Get the banjo tab and follow along with my Free video and you’ll  be playing Man of Constant in no time at all!

Man of Constant Sorrow was of course made famous in the Coen brothers movie that pays homage to Southern music-Oh Brother, Where are thou?  However, Man of Constant Sorrow’s origins go way back.  Ralph Stanley is one bluegrass artist that did this before the movie.

For a more old-time music version, I also urge you to check out Roscoe Holcombe’s recording of this tune.
