That really quick hammer on in the main riff. Very cool.

Bukka never used a capo - ever. Unless he was playing a 7 string guitar with a low string tuned c# to be hitting the V in the bass (and that's as likely as Bukka playing a Chapman Stick)...there's no way he could have played the song in D tuning because the low string in D tuning is the tonic. If you can't hear him hitting the V in the bass from time to time ---- listen more closely!

Oh no it wasn't.
Your wrong!
Its in a Vestapol tuning, key of F#.
Probably open D w/ capo at the 4th.
Along with washboard.

Sure, but are you talking about his first recording of it c.1940, or his post-rediscovery version with the guitar slapping over the 1st line of each verse?

The early version is in open E tuning. It's pretty straightforward....but his 60's recordings of it are quite different, he didn't develop his E Minor tuning until after his classic pre-WWII recordings.

Best way to learn the song (at least the 60s version) is to get yourself a copy of this video:

Fixin to die is open d tuning with a capo at the 4th fret, making it f#.
I'd tab it for ya, but I don't have the software.
It uses the basic shape I IV V chords for open d, and the riff centre's around the 5th string, on the 3rd and 2nd frets.
Does this help?

Think the basic rifs are played in the same way as by Bukka.
