In this, Tunetorial number 9, Dan "Clawdan" Levenson teaches Ebenezer. This one will be a challenge to most of you. It has some fancy up the neck tricks that make it more intricate than your average fiddle tune. I must admit that while not one of my personal favorites, it is a tune that is enjoyed by many and thus an “Old Time Favorite” that is often played when jam sessions get into the key of G. So, enjoy this challenging tune.
Key of G – gDGBD
In this and all of the Tutorials, Dan plays the tune three times through up to speed then slow starting with a basic version and building to an advanced one. Then Dan plays the basic version and breaks it down phrase by phrase. Same with the advanced.
This is tune number 18 tabbed out in Dan's newest book "Old-Time Favorites for Clawhammer Banjo" (MelBay 30224). Tab and standard notation with 2 cds of banjo and fiddle audio tracks. The fiddle notation and mandolin tab can be found in my companion book “Old Time Favorites for Fiddle and Mandolin” (MelBay 30225)
