Continuing the Mossy Roof (Seattle) String Band theme, and recordings with my new Microphone, this is one of those tunes that I find really catchy, and hadn't recorded before. It's in Old D

Another tune I first heard the Skillet Lickers version of, and kinda got hooked on it. This arrangement lends from them, and the Mossy Roof String Band who've done a version under the CC3.0 BY-NC-SA, both of whom have contributed to my little version! The Skillet Lickers version goes on for many verses, but I've just done the traditional 3 times around - otherwise I gets dizzy! Fun playing this one!

A tune from the Ken Perlman Clawhammer Style Banjo book, that I learned whilst on my hols this year. It's in Sawmill/G Modal and it's one of 2 tunes I can play in Sawmill, the other just depresses me, so I don't play it often! Played on my GP Matthews Banjo, with Nylgut strings.

I've been wanting to play this since first picking up a Banjo, so I decided to have a crack at it this month (as rehab!) On my 'Vintage; fitted with Nylguts, al fresco in my back yard, soaking up the sun. Wierd software thing going on at about 1:24 - it jumped??

A short Medley of Grandfathers clock sandwiching Loch Lomond. Just for fun really, no other point than that I could. On my Matthews A-scale with Nickel strings

Learned it first in G-Tuning, then decided that as I was starting to play a lot using Double C, I'd better learn it in this tuning too! Using a nasty microphone and my lovely Geo.P.Matthews English Banjo. One day I might even install some spikes so I can play in Old-D - but for now, C it is.

Another classic I've been listening too recently (and practicing!) Listening to Wade Wards version whilst getting insight and assistance from Ken Perlmans Clawhammer Style Banjo book. In A (aEAC#E) tuning (G-tuning capo.2 - I'm lazy, what can I tell you?)

Same as the other version really, just a cleaner audio and my Matthews Banjo sans Resonator. The Backing Track is played by the Mossy Roof (Seattle) String Band and used under the Creative Commons by-NC-SA v3.0 Licence.

I Found this in my Perlman Book and liked the look of the D Tuning so I tuned up my Matthews to E and had a go. I reckon it's not bad for 3 days practice. I'm sure it'll get a bit smoother with time. Lovely melody and great piece written by Paul Brown. Normally in f#DF#AD, but played here in G#EG#BE (capo'd up 2)

After my experience with the Stringband recently this was one of my tunes to learn. So I got Ken's great book out and began learning the arrangement in there. It's a little pedestrian, but I'm still learning it. It's a great tune with lots of HO/PO's slides and drop-thumbs for all of us Clawhammer nuts like me! Much fun to learn! Buy Ken's book - it's awesome!

From the Ken Perlman Clawhammer Style Banjo - my go at it. On my Matthews which I've just fitted with Nylguts for a change.

So after the enforced break, and all of the trauma associated with it, I'm nearly back to where I was before the break - but with a new improved Right Hand Technique (well I think so anyway!) My latest attempt recorded al fresco. It gets faster, I know. I haven't the same stamina in my right arm yet, and find myself speeding up before th onset of cramp!

Decided that I'd invest in Band in a Box (very basic version, I work in edumaction so get paid peanuts!) and try my hand playing along with a simple backing track. It sounds okay to me - still struggling with my ear being connected to my hand - but I'll get there!

I've Been listening to some good 'Old-Timey' clawhammer players recently, and the version of this song by Gaither Carlton just grabbed me immediately. A great tune, and the original has some great lyrics (I ain't singing, promise!) too. In Old-D (aDADE) but I think he might play the original in C (maybe?)

I got a bit over-stimulated by this tune and decided to do a vocal track! Oh, the horror! Be nice, it's the first time I decided to try singing to something I played. Working on the singing whilst playing thing now! I enjoyed myself, anyhow.
