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.

TOTW 3 April 2020 - Jaw Bone

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...

From Etta Baker for the old-time Tune of the Week for 12/12/14. This tune is compared to a fandango. Etta learned it from her brother-in-law, who learned it from his father. It's the first fandango-type tune I've learned and the first I've learned from Etta Baker, who many people have admired. She picked this one 2-finger style on banjo. I'm using clawhammer

John Salyer of Kentucky is credited most with this song. Pete Sutherland's slow version on "Banjo Gathering" inspired me to learn it, listening both to his 3-finger picking and the original fiddle recording of Salyer in 1940. Thus I'm playing it slow first, then fast; picking, then clawhammer.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 9/15/17, Clyde Davenport, wonderfully smooth Kentucky fiddler, learned this from his father Will who learned it from their neighbor, elder fiddler Will Phipps (b. 1829). It has a modal sound, so I arranged it in sawmill tuning.

Owen "Snake" Chapman (1919 - 2002), Kentucky fiddler, recorded two CDs through which we can learn about him and his music. He knew BHO member Jim Reed well, and also played with and for notables such as Ed Haley and Kenny Baker. Snake felt Jenny's Waltz was his best composition, dedicated to his wife. In the recording he's accompanied by 3-finger picker Paul David Smith, who passed away a few years ago. My arrangement is clawhammered on my new small-scale Doc's Banjo, which I can't seem to put down. :)

Kenny Baker was a genius playing his fiddle. It's real hard on clawhammer banjo, but I can hear the melody and like to think of Bill Monroe listening to his fox hounds hunt on Jerusalem Ridge by his Kentucky home.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/26/19, you can look up lots of versions of Jesse James on BHO. It's been a popular song over the ages, though with some controversial feelings. My arrangement is based on Pete Seeger's.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 3/9/18, Jimmy in the Swamp comes from the fiddle playing of Nebraska great Bob Walters. It's in the key of G and I'm playing in guitar tuning gDGBE. Most banjo players play it in G tuning.
