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.

The older spiritual background of this week's tune, called Christmas Time in the Morning, is explored in the latter part of this medley, with two different Black choir band recordings of the 1920's. It seems to me that the "mountain music" of the Christmas reel may have borrowed from the spiritual, but changed it, too, in terms of adding an entire A part, quickening the tempo, and altering the main melody. In another 20's version by Fiddlin' John Carson there are lyrics which have a slight resemblance to the spiritual, so we know there was influence. The TOTW recorded by Mississippi fiddler Stephen Tucker in 1939 lacked lyrics, but resembled the instrumental of John Carson. Lots of connections here!

Based on Doc Watson's banjo playing, he learned this as a child from his uncle Jake Miller and said it was a courting song. It was a pleasure to look at the video, hear his banjo and vocals, and learn his solo, as well as see him performing with his son Merle. The video is an entire live performance if you're interested. Nice TOTW choice by Neill Connor!

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!

This hymn caught me off guard with its unusual meter in the second section. When I heard Allison Kraus' version I had to give it a try and was very surprised that it clawhammered quite easily. I don't know many modern hymns, but am finding that many are quite beautiful. This has a Celtic feel, and, indeed the writers are from Ireland and England.

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.

Anything by John Salyer, Kentucky fiddler, has been worth learning. The Jack Wilson melody, however, was drowned out in the source recording by a banjo accompanist, so I went to the notation by Jeff Titon to help.

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.
