Just a test to see what the new Ome Jubilee sounds like. Opinions are certainly welcome. Always liked this tune.

This is a sample of how the audio files from the cds included with the book "Side by Side" sound. First is a slow version with just Banjo, followed by slow with just Fiddle, then both together at a moderate tempo. On the cds, these are all separate and complete tracks. You can go to the classified page to find out more about this book.

A couple of versions of Shady Grove here. I remember a post on the forum a while back about different versions of the tune, so here are a few. Enjoy!

A little ragged but what do you want before my second cup of coffee. Always loved this tune and it's great fun to play in this tuning (EBEBE). Enjoy!

Another sound check for my new Ome Jubilee. This is a favorite tune way up here in Vermont even though I learned it from an old LP called Sycamore Tea. Let me know what you think.
