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.

This 3-finger version of Indian Nation is based on Adam Hurt's clawhammer rendition in his Earthtones CD.

Another tune learned from Bob Carlin's CD Banging and Sawing. Bruce Molsky played with him on Indian on a Stump and says he learned it from the Balfa Brothers, five Cajun musicians (actual brothers) who played in the 40's and recorded in the 50's. They also played at the Olympics in Mexico in 1968. It's a pretty three-part tune with a hint of relinquishment. When the timber had been cut, what was left for Native Americans who had lived in the forests?

I don't have good recording equipment, but liked hearing the deeper cello banjo playing along with my Mac Traynham openback on this tune. I'm getting too much sustain or something. One day I'll figure it out...

Learned from Mac Benford's clawhammer banjo CD of Ed Haley tunes, "Half Past Four." Given the title, posting it the day before Thanksgiving reminds me of all the preparation that went into that first Thanksgiving feast that lasted three days.

From Missouri fiddler Cyril Stinnett, this tune was taught to me clawhammer style by Adam Hurt and then suggested that I arrange it for 3-finger picking style. Here's the result. You can compare it with the clawhammer version I learned and see what you think. Both are challenging!

This Missouri tune comes from Cyril Stinnett and is from a recent lesson with Adam Hurt. He called it challenging, and indeed, some of it is! He suggested I arrange it myself with 3-finger picking for fun and to compare them. I'm posting both to see what you think.

When I heard Don Huber play Red Prairie Dawn by Illinois fiddler and well-known tune collector Garry Harrison, I felt I had to learn that tune. On the same CD are several other originals. This one, called Jail Break, sounded like bagpipes at first, but Garry actually used a fiddle he himself had made. I like the B part where it goes up high and you can feel the emotion of the moment.

Craig Smith just rips this. Though I have to do it slower and less notey, it's still a great tune.

VancePants wrote Tune for Janet today. I'm so excited I had to try it already. He plays it 2-finger picking in his beautiful way and I'm attempting it clawhammer style. The rhythm feels Baltic to me. You'd think it's crooked, but it's not. It would be the kind of dance tune the people have to do some quick little syncopated steps all together and proceed -- I can picture it! But don't ask me to try that....Thanks so much, Ken, dedicating a tune to me. That's a keepsake to always treasure, especially right here on BHO where we interact and encourage each other on our musical journeys.

For the old-time Tune of the Week for 4/3/20, Jaw Bone (aka The Old Jaw Bone) is arranged from Bruce Molsky and the Mountain Drifters. Bruce is faithful to the older resources and got his from Pope's Arkansas Mountaineers. I keep thinking Jaw Bone is the name of a horse in the song, which has lyrics...
