The old Beatles classic, frailed in A modal tuning--with a few glitches added so that no one thinks I'm perfect ; )

Recorded by my neo-trad group, Banjovi, in the late nineties. We did it before the Grascals did their bluegrass version of this old Monkees song from the sixties.

An unfinished tune, still in progress, a bit rough around the edges and in the middle.

From Hedy West's version of this happy ballad from the British broadside tradition. Sawmill tuning, capped up 4 to the key of B, but played and sung in E.

A swing version of this song by Laurence Diehl recently appeared on BHO. It was popular and received many comments. I though BHOers might also enjoy this version that I recorded at Suwannee Banjo Camp in 2015. It features double banjos by Scott Anderson and Alan Munde, with Gerald Jones on mando and Niki Portman on bass.I think Anderson, who hails from Florida, put this group together for this song This was part of the faculty concert at SBC, recorded on an Edirol pocket device some 25 feet from the stage. The room is large with lots of hard surfaces, making for a good deal of echo and fuzz in the song. Despite, the musicianship is fine.

I think it was Ray Stevens who blugrassed this old jazz standard. This might be the on claw hammer version of it. Hence the genre is claw jazz.
