I'm playing the Nate Calkins fretless tackhead #12 that arrived for review yesterday. It is a great Walnut necked grain measure pot banjo and has a wonderful sound and feel. Look for the review in July's Old Time Way. It'll be a good un! This old Stephen Foster tune has had its parts reversed over the years but I play it as was originally set with verse before chorus.

Here is me playing it "up to speed" - interpretive or off the cuff so to speak as you might jam it.

It has been about 2 months since I learned the tune and my band has been playing it. Here is a recording of how it has developed from this week's jam session at the house. 5 fiddlers, one guitar and one bass. No banjo as George is north for the summer avoiding the Tucson heat!

Here is the first time I got the tune. It is Andy Porter at the beginning and the rest of us coming in as we "get" it. Annie Trimble on guitar, me and Emmy T on fiddles.

I recorded this today (11/8/08) on my imac with Vega Deering Tub-a-phone using audacity (the program [;)] for this week's Tune of the Week. As you listen through, you will find that there are actually 2 versions combined in one. The more common one is first, but in the second, which I got from playing it with Bruce Molsky (historical reference on the way, it's not new to Bruce) you will notice the transition to a 4 chord halfway through the first measure and also at the START of the B part. Though it took me a while to reconcile it in my head, I find it a pretty cool variation. You are free or course, to play as you will. Just remember, if you want to play nice with others, you'll have to find common ground.

I recorded this today (11/8/08) on my imac with Hardesty fiddle # 85 using audacity (the program [;)] for this week's Tune of the Week. I start basic then add my variations. Choose how basic or fancy you want, but listen to the fiddle part to get a better idea of what you might play on the banjo to pair, counter or otherwise back up the fiddler.
