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.

For the Tune of the Week, 4/19/13. Like many, I learned it from Miles Krassen's Clawhammer Book of the 70's. Hope he knows we're still playing it.

It seemed like this well-known fiddle tune should be in my repertoire. I've finally learned Westphalia Waltz when I came across it in a Ken Perlman clawhammer book.

This Tune of the Week for 12/18/15 is a modern song written by banjo player Dave Carter with a striking Native American influence on the lyrics. When he accompanied this with banjo, it played a harmony to the sung melody, which makes a lovely sound that grew on me the more I listened. However, I only used Dave's singing as a guide to this arrangement, except for the very end, which was an instrumental tag. Ironically, Dave died young in 2002, perhaps in synchrony with his own lyrics about "When I Go." "Bear me my brother under your wings, I will strike fell like lightning when I go...Stand in the mist where my fire used to burn, I will camp on the night breeze when I go...Do not worry for my comfort, do not sorrow for me so, All your diamond tears will rise up and adorn the sky beside me when I go."

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12-8-17, a 1924 fiddle recording of Dr. D.D. Hollis produced 12 recordings. I find Whistlebee an odd name and it has odd timing, too. The tune has been recorded with little resemblance to the source fiddler and it's hard to say why. It's fun to play and has a busyness to it that might resemble a bee.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 3/10/17, White Hat is one of the many tunes notated in Harry Bolick and Stephen T. Austin's new book "Mississippi Fiddle Tunes and Songs from the 1930's." We only know that it was from a recording by J.E. Shoemaker of Moss, MS. I can imagine a photo of a Southern fiddler with a white hat on....It's a neat little tune that modulates, and as Mary Z Cox wrote, White Hat would make a good dance tune.

For the old-time TOTW, 12/4/15, this is my clawhammer arrangement based on Dock Boggs' playing and the 2-finger tab of mojo_monk (Sean Barth). The song reminds me of Fall on My Knees. It has a similar plaintive voice both in the music and lyrics. I'm playing on a Gold Tone cello banjo with the pitch being the same as the Dock Boggs' recording.

This song is the title on one of Kentucky fiddler J.P. Fraley's albums of the 70's, performed along with his wife, Annadeene. It's a different tune from a more common one of the same title.

J. P. Fraley's album with this title name has a gem of his fiddled tunes. Kentuckian J. P. was influenced greatly listening to Ed Haley as a youngster. Previously I'd arranged this with 3-finger picking. By changing the key it laid out better for clawhammer.
