This tune comes from Kentucky fiddler Owen "Snake" Chapman from his Walnut Gap 1999 CD. Paul David Smith played guitar for him. Both of them mentored to BHO member Jim Reed and that's how I heard about them. Hickory Leaf is the second tune if you go to the Slippery Hill website with over 1,400 tunes.

Played at a relaxing tempo for the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/8/15, this tune is named for the Tug Fork River of West Virginia, known for its rugged beauty. It's the locale for the Hatfield/McCoy feud. The name is reminiscent of a failed effort to reach a battle site during the French Indian War due to rough terrain and poor hunting. The starving and mutinous soldiers were forced to eat "tug," or boiled leather strips. Here's the link for the TOTW to read and hear more: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/303503

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this tune comes from West Virginian fiddler Henry Reed via Alan Jabbour. I always like learning the historic tunes collected by Alan. I especially enjoyed his video performance with Ken Perlman where I heard a Southwest flavor and saw a very upbeat Mr. Jabbour. Henry Reed learned the tune from a mulatto fiddler possibly from Texas, which could explain that special rhythm.

This banjo/fiddle duet is an assignment from Adam Hurt for me to play along with his fiddle. His arrangement was challenging, so I've been attempting to master it better as in this recording. I recommend lessons with him. The Skype technology works well and he caters the lessons to my interests and needs. Currently he's helping me learn about Emmett Lundy's fiddled tunes, like Highlanders Farewell, and has shown me his clawhammer arrangements.

Is there room in my heart for the Cello banjo?

Sometimes an event and a new tuning combine to inspire a tune, like in Hillside. It's a tribute to my mother's neighbor, Mrs. Fields, who passed away in her late nineties. Growing up with good neighbors is a blessing, isn't it. Hillside is the final resting place for some of my family members and now for dear Mrs. Fields. The new tuning for me is f#DGAD, which I found in an Art Rosenbaum resource book. It's a "D variant" and he calls it "Little Black Train" tuning. This recording is my first effort using three tracks with Garage Band using my Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie and Gold Tone cello banjo.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/24/14, this Celtic song has old roots and more than one set of lyrics. In both sets it's definitely a sea shanty. Hearing the youtube acappella version lets me imagine the beautiful music performed by sailors as a relief from the hard work and boredom of being at sea.

Learned from a 1974 Kenny Hall recording for the Tune of the Week, 6/19/15. I'm proud to say he was from California and will be looking up more of his bio and music after this interesting TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/305343. He learned it while in Texas. There are two measures in the B part with six beats instead of four. This recording is a slow take on the tune.

When you first hear this tune it's through the bandmates of the John Hartford String Band after John had passed. It's a gorgeous piece, like a symphony. I think it will take me years to really learn it.

After recording this on an openback I thought I'd try it on gourd banjo, too. The D chord is in the B part was hard to cleanly get.

Two source fiddlers--Jake Phelps and James Bryan. This is a tune I learned listening to Bob Carlin's CD "Banging and Sawing," where its title is Hosses in the Canebrake. James Bryan has since become my favorite fiddler. It's listed as Wild Horses in the Canebrake in the Milliner-Koken Collection of American Fiddle Tunes, but Bruce Greene, who recorded west Kentucky fiddler Jake Phelps (1875-1977), says it's called Horses in the Canebrake. Farmers liked to have their livestock "fenced-in" by the tall canes.

From the playing of Kentucky fiddler Birch Patrick (1916 - 2003), this crooked tune may be named for a cow stuck in mud. It somehow fell under my fingers even with it's crookedness in several measures.

For the old-time Tune of the Week as played by Harvey "Pappy" Taylor, whose great fiddling contributed to the repertoire of the Indian Creek Delta Boys. Humpback Mule is also included as fiddle tune #106 in the Dear Old Illinois anthology of traditional music of downstate Illinois by Garry Harrison and Jo Burgess.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/24/17, Ida Red is also known as Down the Road. This is Tommy Jarrell's version. When I learned Down the Road it was Earl Scrugg's version. It's neat to have these two icons linked through this song. I'm playing on a brand new Randy Shelton "The Ironsides Banjo Co." mountain banjo--quite fun!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/23/15, Indian Corn comes from the Dear Old Illinois collection by Garry Harrison. I find it to be a cheerful harvest tune which I first heard played by a favorite fiddler, Rhys Jones.

This song was played every night in Yosemite National Park, California before the fire falls were pushed over the cliff. Using partial chords I found all the notes.
