Heard this rabbit song on the Bill Dillof CD (Dillof, Rice & the Cuyahogians). I just fell in love with it, learned it and here it is in gDGDE. The song originally titled "Big Eyed Rabbit" was from a Samantha Bumgarner 78 rpm recording.

"Before the Road" written by Sue Massek, of the Reel World String Band (other members: Bev Futrell (who kindly provided me all the words), Karen Jones and Elise Melrood), wrote this song, which I heard recently on Rich Kirby's show "Old Kentucky Bound" Bev told me that Sue had some friends in Cherokee, North Carolina. While the song may be about the Cherokee, there of many lines in the poetry of the lyrics that seem like Mother Earth is singing to us. She needs to replenish herself so that all plants and animals can have a sustainable life.

From Melvin Wine's first record "Cold Frosty Morning" [pitch corrected] This recording is from Melvin Wine's recording "Cold Frosty Morning". The pitch was quite a bit sharp, so I adjusted it to the key of G.

I'm uploading this tune from the CD I made in 2000 called "Banjo Stuff". It's a test for a tune I plan to upload for my TOTW which is from an Augusta Heritage cassette which, while they gave me permission, they requested that it not be down loadable. Banjo - aDAde

I learned this song from a recording of Earl McDonald's Original Louisville Jug Band (Atlanta, GA, March 30, 1927). I did notice that "Jugband" in not a Genre. Banjo Tuning: aDADE Style of finger picking: anything I had to do to get those notes. A parody of the song "Steamboat Bill". The recording on Yazoo "Ruckus Juice & Chittlins - The Great Jug Bands" of "Casey Bill" (should have been "Casey & Bill", but the original producers must have missed the "&") made me fall in love with Earl McDonald's songs and jug band style. Eventually I discovered "Clifford Hayes & the Louisville Jug Bands", volumes 1, 2 and 3 on RST Records (JPCD-1501-2, JPCD-1502-2 and JPCD-1503-2) with Earl in quite a few different bands, besides the one under his own name, including: “Dixieland Jug Blowers” and “Whistler and His Jug Band”, among others.

From the notes to my 2000 "Banjo Stuff" CD. Now we come to the tune I call the CRAZY DUSTY MILLER. The "crazy" part of the name comes from me. When I first heard this tune, I heard it out of phase, which resulted in this musical joke. In aEADE; with apologies to Armin Barnett.

Banjo tuning - gDGDE. This is the first time I've made a setting that's 1/2 clawhammer and 1/2 finger picked. I practiced with the track on the Clyde Davenport Field Recorders’ Collective CD, FRC104 and it was compatible. However, the speed I’m playing this is only about 75-80% of the tempo that Clyde played on the fiddle. I can’t handle full speed yet.
