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.

Here's my very beginning attempt at a tricky tune. The B part rhythm is very syncopated. The C part is both melodic and rhythmic. If you listen to the Tune of the Week presenter play, Carl Baron, you can hear much better what it should sound like. He also used a different tuning than I did, though my open G is said to be what the composer used -- a Galax banjo player from a musical family who sadly passed away at age 41.

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.

TOTW  07-30-21 – The London Hornpipe

This old tune goes by other titles, but I chose the recording made by the great Missouri fiddler Cyril Stinett. I tried to eliminate some of the notes so typical for Ozark hornpipes and managed to simplify by using the 5th string as a kind of a drone.

Lone Prairie has a long history, coming from the popular old song Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie, which derived from a ballad called Ocean Burial, or Burial at Sea. These arrangements have five sources, ranging in dates from 1927 - 2011 and including Carl Sprague, Harvey "Pappy" Taylor, Bruce Molsky, Wade Ward, and Jon Bekoff. Check out the TOTW link to learn more.

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.

This is a lyrical piece played by Stephen Wade using harmonics in f#DEAD tuning. It's been quite interesting to figure out how he did it.

From Adam Hurt's piano version, inspired by Kentucky fiddler John Salyer whose many tunes are always worth learning. I've also enjoyed playing my Gold Tone cello banjo with all nylon strings. Hope you enjoy, too.

This comes from Kentucky fiddler (originally from West Virginia) Ed Haley's historic recordings. As I recorded it I tried to imagine what it would be like for a real lost Indian and figured the title is also an allegory for any problem when you don't yet have the solution.

This version comes from Paul David Smith of Kentucky who learned it from his father. It's in the unusual tuning of fCGCD, though Paul played it in fDFAD. Mine's clawhammered, his was picked. I've wondered how many different Lost Indians there are. I know three distinct tunes called Lost Indian and have heard more than that.
