Woke up one morning and started playing this tune, not knowing the name of it or where I heard it. But my hangout pals quickly informed me it was Spotted Pony. Played in D on an early Bart Reiter, No. 240.

This tune or song has long been associated with Texas swing and Bob Wills, who wrote it. But we are giving it an old-time spin in this field recording at the Indiana Fiddlers Gathering in June 09. Love the bass lines being played on an old kalamazoo guitar by Rick Donahoe from Yellow Springs, Ohio. Gil Sewell, a fiddle player from Pikeville, Tenn., brought this tune to the party.

This fiddle tune comes from Blount County, Alabama, about 40 miles north of Birmingham. I learned it from fiddle players in Birmingham. aDADE on a fretless Ramsey.

Gil Sewell of Pikeville, Tenn,, is an irrascible old coot and I am proud to call him my friend. When he plays fiddle, he literally jumps around in his chair. This tune was recorded in March 2008 at Breakin' Up Winter, an event sponsored by the Nashville Old-Time String Band Association. I'm playing an early Bart Reiter No. 240. aEAC#E

O Lord you know I have no friend like you. If Heaven's not my home then Lord what will I do? The angels beckon me from Heaven's open door. And I can't feel at home in this world anymore. Fairbanks Tubaphone in G. Author unknown. First known recording in 1924 by Stovepipe No. 1. (Sam Jones)

Well, a part of me feels kinda silly posting this, and maybe it is. But my cat Thumper died on Sunday after living with me for 18 years. I came to love that old cat, and she came to tolerate me. I miss her and so I made up this tune to keep her memory alive. My pal Kirk Hunter is on fiddle. He indulged me and I appreciated that. Here's the tune in the key of A.

This is an original tune that I came up with while at a bed and breakfast in Nashville, Indiana, on Nov. 29th, which just so happens to have been my birthday. My wife, Tera, fooled me into going to Brown County on the premise of seeing a man about a banjo. She had reservations for the B&B and we had a great weekend. aEAC#E on a Bart Reiter made in 1987.
