Genre: Popular / Playing Style: Bluegrass (Scruggs)

A classic old samba. I recorded it on an old tape multi-track, and the tape stretched, so it's slower than recorded, but I still like the groove. I used my Ibanez Bi-Centennial banjo, an Ibanez AE100 jazz guitar run through a phaser, a Gibson AJ, and an old drum machine.

An old favorite children's march from 1913, played in the Classical style. I used my B&D Silver Bell #1 on this one, with the resonator taken off the banjo. Just bare fingers- no picks!

copyright 2007 Hal Rowberry. All rights reserved. I played banjo on this session job, and really like the tune. Lots of fun to listen to! My part was mostly rhythm, but I got a few licks in, here and there. You can hear the banjo mostly on the right side of the mix. At the end of the song, there's a reference to: "dancin' to Pinto, at the Saddle Sore Saloon' The Saddle Sore is a famous honky-tonk just over the hill from Jackson Hole, on the Idaho side, in a tiny town called Swan Valley. All the rich folks and movied stars who live in Jackson hit the Saddle Soar, where nobody pays any attention to them. Pinto Bennet, The King of Elmore County, played there often, with his band, The Motel Cowboys. He's the best Country singer/songwriter I know. Pinto became a pretty big deal in the British Isles... I heard he was well known over there.

I think this is in jig time- it feels like it, anyway. I thought I'd try to write a jig after hearing Bela do one. I originally called the tune 'The Rose of O'Neil', but as it developed, it started sounding more like an Irish war chant than a delicate little thing... hence the name. It could be taken both ways.

I tweaked the recording to make it clearer after posting this tune the first time. Thanks to all of you who listened to and rated the first recording! Sorry I lost your comments- there was no way to replace the recording and keep them. The tune is one of Carl Works' works. C. Works was a songwriter during the Civil War, and wrote many tunes that are still being played today. I played it on my B&D Silver Bell with the resonator off the banjo in Open C tuning. I like the tone of this banjo openbacked so much that the resonator is going to stay off the banjo full time now. I always loved this tune- it's the one heard in a lot of old Western movies, played by the drunk piano player in the saloon, just before the Good Guy (or the Bad Guy) opens those swinging doors, 6-guns at the ready, and clears the joint out. The piano player always has just enough time to inish the shot of whiskey before he dives for cover...

This tune was a big pop hit in 1960 for the Billy Vaughn Orchestra. Chet Atkins recorded a popular version, as did the PlayALongs (later Jimmy Gilmer & the Fireballs). It was a cha-cha on all of them, but it's now played by bluegrass bands on occasion. I've heard all the recordings of it, and I learned it from a friend's mando-playing father in the 70's. This version is my own. I messed around on this one & had fun with it... used the Prucha Diamond Point.
