Learned from Bruce Greene's CD of this title. I recently "discovered" his fiddling and the significance it had in our knowledge of Kentucky fiddlers, though he first heard this from a banjo player in western Kentucky named James Dickison. It's in the Milliner-Koken Collection of American Fiddle Tunes, which I'm happy to also discover.

KC stands for Klezmer Clawhammer. This is my first attempt at it, in response to Banjo Judy's query for some tab and after a look at a newly formed portion of her website devoted to Klezmer music (http://www.banjojudy.com/klezmer-music/). The tune is in Gm according to notation found there, so I used a Gm tuning of gDGBbD -- one I'd just been working on with another tune. If the tune was played in Am I'd be trying it out of open G tuning using chordal positions.

Clyde Davenport, Kentucky fiddler and banjo player from Kentucky, still must be alive today, in his 90's because I can't find anything otherwise. There's a youtube of him playing at his birthday concert at 91 years old six years ago. I think the tune he plays like this one are enchanting and engaging.

This Chinese folk song is as old as the Ming Dynasty and is the title of an Oscar and Hammerstein musical of the 1950's. A friend in my photography class from Hong Kong sent it to me and wanted to hear it on banjo. I obliged him and also set it to photos, which I'll post in a Sound Off! thread.

This pretty tune comes from the scratchy recordings of the blind fiddler originally from West Virginia. Ed Haley's son, Ralph, recorded him in the 1940's, but Ed resisted commercial recordings. There are three volumes available on amazon.com of these home recordings. I first heard of Ed Haley through John Hartford when the soundmen were blasting a CD at a bluegrass festival intermission--my reaction was: "Who is that? That's the music I've been looking for!"

When I ordered a custom banjo from Carolina Banjo I asked Ryan Navey, an artistic luthier, to carve the dove on my necklace. It was so exciting that I wrote this tune, no less in a unique tuning gGGAD.

From the playing of Henry Reed, inspired for learning from the fiddling of Rayna Gellert. I'm reminded of crawling into bed when very tired, but satisfied from having had a good day.

This has been one of the most popular tunes with old-time musicians for a long time and was the subject of the Tune of the Week a while back. This arrangement is first mine, then Kentucky fiddler Ed Haly's via Adam Hurt. My favorite version, which influences me in my arrangement, comes from bluegrass extrodinaire banjo player Craig Smith. He and Adam live within blocks from each other, so here they come together musically.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/1/16, this tune comes from the playing of Illinois fiddler Waldo Helton and is #67 in R.P. Christeson's Old-Time Fiddle Repertory Vol. 2. He played the tune every year at a fourth of July picnic. What makes this tune unique this week is that their is no longer an available recording from the tune -- just the notation in the book. BHO members have collaborated to resurrect the tune and even give it a title.

As played on fiddle by banjo Bluegrass Boy Tony Ellis. Retiring from Bill Monroe's band in 1962, Tony now enjoys most fiddling with fiddles in his shop in his Ohio home. When I contacted him about his favorite tunes and what to learn, he didn't recommend this traditional Irish tune, Fox Chase Reel. Here it is anyway, and next will come more of his recommended original tunes.

Frosty Morn is the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/24/18. Related to Cold Frosty Morning in some of its melody and chordal movement, here's a medley of the two. The first was learned from the guitar flat-picking of Doc Watson, who I idolize. The second was learned from Miles Krassen's Clawhammer Banjo book. He used Henry Reed's version which he had published previously in his Appalachia Fiddle book. Sawmill tuning, playing on my Doc's Banjo.

Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport was the source fiddler for this tune as Wild Goose Chase. Alabama fiddler James Bryan recorded this with Bob Carlin on the great Banging and Sawing CD. Recently Nick Hornbuckle recorded it on his new CD, Twelve By Two, Plus or Minus One. In my adventurous Skype lessons with Adam Hurt it became one of the tunes I chose to transpose to a new tuning for me that we've been working on, equivalent to f#BEAD. I call it Old Cumberland Gap tuning because it's described as such in Anita Kermode's huge list of banjo tunings. Adam and I tune it up one step for better string tension, so this is in the key of E. Lots of fun to play. Hope you enjoy!

Learned off the new CD of BHO member Nickhornbuckle called 12X2 (+/-), it's fitting title for the first day of fall today. I've seen the geese flying overhead while at school and point out their V formation to my first graders.

For the Tune of the Week, 11/15/19, Gentleman from Virginia was written by a renowned fiddler who played in a band with Carroll Best. Tommy won a North Carolina Folk Heritage Award, amongst other honors. This arrangement comes from a bandmate, Roger Howell and from the Canote Brothers. You'll notice the difference. I like how the latter one expresses the melody.

The second air is played first, the first air is known as a drinking song. The Irish people must have enjoyed their get-togethers!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, Nov. 3, 2017, Georgia Railroad was popularized by Gid Tanner and the Skillet Lickers in the 1920's. It's been recorded many times since, sometimes with silly lyrics, which I like. The first version I heard was actually Adam Hurt's upbeat fiddle version on his new CD Artifacts. I combine three versions here, one from Riley Puckett, who sang and played guitar on the original recording, one from Adam, and one other related tune recorded by Fiddlin' John Carson and recently by Harry Bolick called Way Late Last Night When Peter Went a-Fishing.
