Sitting On Top of the World – A Great Blues- and Bluegrass-Standard from 1930

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:
