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.

For the TOTW, 9/6/13, this is from Kentucky fiddler Buddy Thomas. The actual Tune of the Week is Walking Down Georgia Row and is very different, in my opinion, but I like learning anything from Buddy Thomas' playing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10-5-18, "Git Up in De Morning" is in Thomas Brigg's 1855 Banjo Instruction book. I arranged it for clawhammer style from Joe Weidlich's minstrel tab. It's said that Bill Whitlock learned this in 1839 from Joel Sweeney himself. I hear Blue Tail Fly. There are lyrics, too, and we can hear them in the discussion thread link by BHO member Tim Twiss.

From Kentucky fiddler John Salyer, this is a little known tune from home recordings in the early 40's. The title appears to come from a Gaelic term for "red-haired boy." The intense feel of the tune may resemble reputation often given to red-heads.

For the Tune of the Week, 2-22-13. This tune's name is the name of a Missouri fiddler who played it. He must have been a happy fellow! It's in the Milliner-Koken Collection of American Fiddle Tunes as played by Preston "Pete" McMahan (1918 - 2000).

Learned from Luther Strong in the Library of Congress. This tune was claimed to have earned him $500 in fiddle contest wins. Reading about him in Stephen Wade's book The Beautiful Music Around Us reveals much about Mr. Strong's life and music.

For the TOTW, Sept. 13, 2013. The beginning does sound like Ragtime Annie. When Humphrey Bates' group, The Possum Hunters, plays it at the infant Grand Old Opry in the 20's you hear the caller shouting, "Everybody dance!"

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/2/18, this rare tune comes from the 1930 recording of Mississippi fiddler Alvis Massengale who played with the Newton County Hillbillies. It has some similarity to Going to the Wedding, Sally Ann, Great Big Taters in Sandy Land, and Mississippi Square Dance. I liked how the B part went and have used that fingering in its 4th measure for several unrelated tunes. For tab see the current TOTW.

Happy tune. The era of the gold rush had a huge effect on the U.S.A. We still feel the impact. My little ghost town of a community used to be quite large and the "miner forty-niner" was quite real. Being that Bill Monroe performed it, does that make it bluegrass? Or is it old-time?

From the playing of the great Texan fiddler Bob Wills and for the old-time Tune of the Week, 9/8/17, it's a treat to have this tune with our old-time repertoire. Mac Benford plays it on banjo and that's good enough for me! The band leader I worked with for 14 years played steel-pedal at one time and his love for Bob Wills showed. He had us learning some of his instrumentals over the years, so here's one I can show him. :)

Today the Lomax Project CD comes out -- a collaboration by Jayme Stone with several great musicians. I received it and was inspired to learn a tune, but went to the original source, Jess Morris, after reading Stephen Wade's chapter on him in The Beautiful Music All Around Us. Stephen wrote the introduction to the extensive liner notes that comes with the new CD. Delightful old Western tune.
