Key of A – A Tuning –aEAC#E
In this, Tunetorial number 29, Dan "Clawdan" Levenson teaches a less often played tune, Salty River Reel.
This tune is tune number 42 in Old Time Favorites for Clawhammer Banjo (MB 30224)
Dan has several fiddle versions of this tune from Cyril Stinnett, Charlie Walden and Dwight Lamb. Chirps Smith has also recorded it as well, though Dan can’t tell you exactly which of these (if any) was his first source. Cyril Stinnett’s is considered to be the historical source for this tune.
Once again, Dan has included a fiddle version of it in the intro so you will have a melodic source to work from.
