After hearing Paul's Leap Frog I found that I could easily play along with it. I tried composing some counterpoint melody to it, but forgot to re-set the slow-downer back up to the key of D. This came out in C with my banjo tuned to double C and I'm playing clawhammer. Paul is playing a mandocello tuned in 5ths and uses a flatpick.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this version of Liberty is from a 1925 Okeh recording of Fiddlin' John Carson of Georgia, said by many to be the musician who recorded the first country record (Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane and The Old Hen Cackled and the Rooster is Going to Crow).

This version of Liberty is also called Liberty Two-Step, which distinguishes it from another tune called Liberty. (Check out the current Tune of the Week for 9/16/16 for more info.) I learned this one from John Burke's Clawhammer Book for Banjo back in the 70's and it was a popular square dance tune then. I think it's a pretty tune.

Virginia fiddler Luther Davis was said to play this in his 90's. Alice Gerard extensively recorded him and plays it with Gail Gilespie on the Hangout archive (http://www.banjohangout.org/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=3041&archived=%20). Unfortunately the album with Luther David -- The Old Time Way -- hasn't been reissued. I learned Lily of the Valley listening to an Adam Hurt and Christian Wig jam recording from last year's Clifftop.

This song title is one of an 1849 collection for Christy's Minstrels. It actually sounds like someone walking with a limp. Mike Compton teaches it to his mandolin students. I'm playing it on my older Tennessee open back.

For TOTW 12/27/13. I've been glad to learn a piece played by the great Uncle Jimmy Thompson of Grand Old Opry fame.

Inspired from Art Rosenbaum and Pete Seeger. I'm studying Art Rosenbaum's material, especially 2-finger style from Pete Steele's playing. Though his tab was for that style, I found that it worked equally well for clawhammer and was easier. :( Oh well, please don't call me lazy. :)

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/26/14, this tune is found in Jeff Titon's Kentucky Old-Time Fiddle Tunes book and notated from the recordings of J.W. Day (Jilson Setters) and B. Effie Pierson--the former in 1928, the latter in 1975. I like Effie's gentle version better, but chose to emulate Mr. Day's older recording. The notes are a little more "harder-working" in it, befitting the poor little fellow who has to work like a man to pay his board, as per the few lyrics available for the song. I suppose you could call those notes "myxolydian notes." However, the boy will grow to be a hard-working man--a valued trait in my book.

Earl Collins learned this from his father, William. Earl was born in Missouri, moved to Oklahoma, and ended up in Southern California, where my guitar teacher hosted a jam where I remember getting to play as a new clawhammer player. Earl was kind and encouraging. He passed away soon not more than a year later.

TOTW 10 April 2020 - Little Old Log Cabin in the Lane (and more!)

For the old-time Tune of the Week for 4/10/20, the song always brings a nostalgic feeling to me. I even associate it with a time and place and an older couple bringing it to our picnic jam.

Original Tune of the Week, Little Olentangy is a river that runs into Big Scioto in Columbus, Ohio. It's been fun learning about geography and playing the cheerful tune on cello banjo behind Chuck Levy's banjo. You might be hearing Chuck's birds chirping in the background.

For the Tune of the Week, 5/31/13. The story of the tune is sad, so its beauty is bittersweet. A husband came home and his wife was gone--whether taken by Indians or Union soldiers is unknown, but both tales are given as the tune's history. I'm playing it in Adam Hurt's tuning (fDGCD). You can download for free a new CD by Chance McCoy with Adam and others on the link in the TOTW (or you can leave a tip). There are good liner notes, too.

This old-time TOTW explores one of the many tunes entitled Liza Jane. The Carter Brothers and Son recorded it for Okeh in 1928. Check out this week's TOTW -- I know I'm going to read more about this family. There's a link to a good and long article with the Jimmie Carter's (the "son") family stories. http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/317848.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/3/15, here are three versions. The first is Big Liza Jane from the banjo playing of Kyle Creed. Next is a similar tune via West Virginian fiddler Franklin George and his banjo-playing partner, Katie Johnson. Then comes my arrangement of Going Down to Cairo (sometimes called Goodbye Liza Jane).

Someone played this tune a while back and I wondered about the lyrics. Today I received them in the form of a youtube video made in Canada to promote the composer who is revered there for writing some enduring folk songs. It's a cute animation and the beginning shows log rollers doing an amazing job of balancing on logs in a river. The song is about a girl choosing the log roller to dance with because he makes it so fun. I'm playing my little old banjo with no tone ring and some nylgut strings.
