Cold Rain and Snow

Posted by rrode on Sunday, June 16, 2013

This month's Banjo News has a tribute to Wayne Erbsen, marking the 40th anniversary of the publication of Clawhammer Banjo for the Complete Ignoramus.  I don't actually own the book, but I do have his Southern Mountain Series of books.  I lent out the Mandolin and Guitar copies to friends, and haven't seen them back lately -- gotta bug those friends to get together for some jamming.  I still have the Banjo and Dulcimer versions.  All are terrific, as is the accompanying CD.  On the CD they do a tune called Red Rocking Chair, which is basically the same as the Rain and Snow covered in the complete ignoramus. 

So I've been picking at the tune for a while but hadn't really worked it up as something I could actually play.  But now I have -- and posted it here - .  The words are adapted from several sources.  It is nice when the song tells a story -- even a somber one such as this.
