My friend Eric likes to play this tune, so I thought that I should listen to some recordings of it and learn topplay it right. I have found many interesting videos and compiled thos in my playlist.
This tune goes back to the 1930s when it has been recorded by the Mississippi Sheiks:
Mississippi Sheiks – Sitting On Top Of The World
I have found a video with Doc Watson from 1962:
SITTING ON TOP OF THE WORLD (1964) by Doc Watson
And a version with Bill Monroe that can be found in the Blackmountain Underground blog:
