Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
From the singing of Roscoe Holcomb, I admit having a hard time with his banjo 2-finger picking. Even his singing has a timing I can't get -- it's very irregular. But for the Tune of the Week I gave it a try and used his singing to arrange a clawhammer solo instead. Singing here is included, though it's not my fort? to sing solo, so be kind. The interesting thing about this song is that it's related to the familiar one via the lyrics and title, On Top of Old Smokey. There are many more lyrics.

Never heard this before, but I think you did a lovely job, both in singing and playing!

I'll take your singing over mine any day Janet, not to mention your playing. Your clawhammer sounds fine on this.
