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.

No, still not drinking....Here's the Tune of the Week from a Georgian fiddler, "Fonzy" Kennemur. Slowing it down make it kind of pretty. :)

For the Tune of the Week, 3/8/13. West Virginian fiddler Ernie Carpenter's grandfather liked this. He learned it from his father since his grandfather had passed away.

For the TOTW, 7/5/13, a fun tune to play. This one modulates from D to A. I'm using modal tuning, though it seems that double D would have been the normal way to go.

The old-time Tune of the Week for 1/4/19 is one of the Greasy String tunes. According to Adam Keisling there are six distinct tunes with that title. His choice for TOTW is the one Dwight Diller and Jimmy Tripplett learned from West Virginian Lee Hammons. I used tab on Dwight's site and combined it with Seneca Square Dance and another Greasy Coat Dwight recorded from Burl Hammons. I hear similarities on all three tunes.

Learned from the playing of Eck Robertson, but inspired by Rayna Gellert. I guess growing good potatoes in sandy soil must not be too hard.

The old-time Tune of the Week for 9/9/16 is Green Corn, also heard commonly as Hot Corn, Cold Corn. Lena Hughes, an elderly and beloved 2-finger style picker from Missouri recorded this and I've taken the opportunity to try something for the first time with the 2-finger style. She uses thumb-lead and I also tried index-lead the third time through while "playing the melody."

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/22/16, which is actually Richmond Cotillion. Green Mountain Polka is supposed to be a variation of it and several historic recordings exist of both tunes, including one with dance calls. My arrangement comes from Ed Haley's fiddling. I like the modulation and was pleased that open C tuning allowed that to seamlessly happen. Many times I'll get a discordant 5th string when I try tunes which modulate, but not in this one. Check out the TOTW this week: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/317585.

A fine Tune of the Week from North Carolina with a crooked part that suits the title Green River.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, Green Willis is named for a fiddler from Willis, Virginia. It's also called The Raw Recruit. When it's played in slow jig time, it's called Chapel Hill March. Go back far enough to Scotland and it was called Da New Rigged Ship. Lots to think about here on this cheerful tune that reminds me of a new soldier marching enthusiastically.

It sounds like a marching soldier. It must be easier marching to music.

TOTW 5/6/22 - Melvin Wine's Greenback Dolly-O

A dance tune Melvin Wine learned from his fiddling father, Bob Wine. Melvin played confidently, briskly and fluidly. He must have been a challenge to keep up with, but great fun for a dance!

This is West Virginian fiddler Tom Dillon's version from the MacCrae Sisters. I wish I knew more about him, though Gerry Milnes wrote a little bit in his book called Play of a Fiddle. I think it's got an interesting A part that does a sort of skip-gallop kind of rhythm that intrigued me. A grey eagle is actually a buzzard.

Learned from a Mike Compton mandolin lesson. Its minor key makes it sound different from other versions.
