Pitkin County Turnarounds
Pitkin County Turnaround
This is one of my early tunes, and I don’t know what prompted its creation, except my love of Scruggs Style and my desire to emulate it. I was living in Aspen, Colorado when I wrote it, and because Aspen is in Pitkin County, and just about every drug store and bar was called the Pitkin County something-or-other, Pitkin found its way into the title. I called it a “turnaround” instead of a “breakdown” because I was a hippie freak who thought it was cool and meaningful.
