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.

Learned from the fiddling of well-known Missourian Lonnie Robertson (1908 - 1981). I'm just becoming familiar with some of his work and am impressed by his smooth, clear, fast playing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/4/19, Lonesome Road Blues is also known as Goin' Down the Road Feeling Bad. Check out the discussion thread for a very thorough coverage of this well-known song. I just sing a couple of verses here, out of many, many.

From Alabama fiddler James Bryan who learned it from Mack Blalock. Lookout Mountain is near James home and Lookout Blues is the title of his first solo album. It has a crooked A part with lots of syncopation. The B part remind me of Cajun music.

O'Carolan composed this in honor of the 4th Earl of Inchiquin, County Clare, Ireland. It sounds like a minuet until the second part, when O'Carolan's signature melody surprises are heard.

Kentucky fiddler John Salyer did the source recordings on both Lost Boy and Lost Girl. They're quite similar. The A parts differ, but the chordal flavor is the same and together they make a natural medley. Bruce Molsky recorded a CD with the title Lost Boy. Adam Hurt's Lost Girl on piano from his Insight CD inspired me to work on it.
