Known as the Singing Brakeman, Jimmie Rodgers (1897 - 1933) songs are fun to sing, but lyrically a bit sad. His yodel is famous!

Learned for the old-time Tune of the Week, the story behind this tune is that it's one Melvin Wine learned by hearing his mother sing this hymn. Now the lyrics are most gone, but the melody is still shared. Check out the current Tune of the Week: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/297062

West Virginia fiddler Melvin Wine learned this from his father. The title may relate to a cake walk song of the pre-minstrel era. Walk Chalk Chicken with a Bowtie On is another title Melvin gave the tune, which is the old-time Tune of the Week for 3/4/16. I found the timing a bit odd, though it has a cheery feel.

After recording with a fretted banjo I tried my small scale fretless gourd, too. I find getting all the notes challenging and think of the fiddle's challenge with a very short scale compared to a banjo.

This original song by Owen 'Snake' Chapman is named after a mountain feature close to his home in Letcher County, Kentucky. He wrote many tunes and reminds me of Banjo Hangout's Jim Reed from Pike County, Kentucky who also wrote many tunes and played with Owen.

For the old-time Tune of the Week 10/30/15. Many pickers have been inspired by Adam Hurt's lovely version. I thought I'd go back a little farther historically speaking and listened to DeCosta Waltz's Southern Broadcasters recordings of the 1920's, which is very similar to Adam's. I believe that the other historic recordings of The Wandering Boy (i.e. The Carter Family and the Stanley Brothers) are related. The lyrics are sad and meaningful, sung from a mother's view.

For the Tune of the Week, August 10, 2013. This is based on Kentucky fiddler Perry Riley's recording. It has six measures in a part, which is rare. The upbeat feeling goes along with the story of going from one state (West Virginia) to the town of Warfield in another state (Kentucky) just because it was legal to drink there at the time.

As played by Emmett Lundy, I like the image of waves given by the song. It begins with something low and jumps to something syncopated up high -- like a big wave getting ready to break.

This arrangement is in old G tuning, played down a step (fCFCD) from the playing of Edden Hammonds and Alan Jabbour. I'm working on tunes I can transpose to this tuning as a *homework assignment* from Adam Hurt.

First day home for my new Gold Tone CB5 and a first-time duet to see how the combination of cello banjo and mandolin sounds.

For the TOTW, 2/27/15. Having read Stephen Wade's book The Beautiful Music Around Us, I got to read a chapter about Luther Strong. He was crass when drunk, but oh, what a fiddler! His family adored him when he was sober, but left him when he drank. Then they returned, time after time. When I play the tune I think of the part of him that was kind when life is good and everyone's happy.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/4/14 from the fiddling of Jimmy Driftwood (1907 - 1998) of Timbo, AR. He said that two of his uncles, half-brothers to his father, were half-Cherokee and lived with them for years. I'm playing in a very unusual tuning of eBGBD

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/15/17, Wes Muir learned this during the Civil War era. Missouri fiddler Nile Wilson (1912 - 2008) passed the tune on. He learned at a young age to play fiddle from his grandfathers and father. He plays at a fast dance tempo and I can imagine this tune as a polka, though it's said Mr. Wilson's favorite tunes were for square dances.
