Alice Gerrard, a living legend herself, wrote a song about another musical legend, Elizabeth Cotten, who she knew and whose conversation with her inspired this song, released on Alice's CD Bittersweet. As I listened to the CD this song moved me to attempt it on banjo and I've had the delight of learning more about these two amazing women. As the lyrics say, "And won't you sing to me as I take my leave, you're going to miss me when I'm gone."

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 3/18/16 this tune was a new one for me. I listened to a lovely guitar arrangement by Ken Perlman and simplified it for clawhammering. Kids would like to swing on a gate, wouldn't they. Parents would tell them to get off, but it must be too fun to resist

Neill Connor of Sedgely, UK recently posted a video "challenging" me to learn his favorite hornpipe which he's been working on, so here's my effort after 3 days. I simplified Ken Perlman's original tab by changing the 5th string tuning and removing the difficult triplets. Though it's still the same tune, it's probably not what Neill hears more commonly in his country. I guess it's an Americanized hornpipe.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 4/6/18, Blanche Coldiron comes fully to my attention -- a Kentucky musician who lived the rural life of work and generosity and leaves a quiet legacy that we come to know after her passing. Tally Ho is a 4-part tune that builds up to a gallant descending end. I'm playing this in double C tuning on a Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie openback.

This is a traditional tune from Scotland going back as far as 1549 in a published ballad format. Dave Hum played this tune and his videos are still on-line to view -- what an amazing picker he was! I'm playing on a Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie openback, but also enjoyed it played lower on the cello banjo. You can compare the two, as I've uploaded them both.

After hearing Dave Hum play this I wondered if I could, too. It's taken some effort, but here's what I came up with, thanks to banjukebox's tab and some further exploration. Though simpler than Dave's expressive, creative version, it's fun to play. I like the cello banjo's lower tone on Tam Lin compared to my Whyte Laydie openback, but you can compare them as I've uploaded them both.

The blue sky and flowers on the hill remind someone of who is missed. The Nashville Bluegrass Band recorded this.

A recent old-time Tune of the Week (http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/291864) included one of the two tunes recorded in the 1920's for Okeh records by Dudley Vance (1880 - 1962) and his Tennessee Breakdowners. Here's the other tune, encouraged for me to learn in one of my Skype lessons with Adam Hurt. This tune was recorded along with a square dance caller. You can hear my banjo picking up on the fiddler's role in this tune to provide lots of dance rhythm.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 9/26/14. Part of this one reminds me of an old favorite, The Chieftains version of The Fox Hunt. I listened to the Okey 1920's recording of Vance's Tennessee Mountain Breakdowners. I found it interesting that artist Thomas Hart Benton drew Dudley Vance and described him a bit in his autobiography. Check out TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/291864

After hearing Jim Reed's Sound Off post I gave this old favorite a try. It has many chords and was a fun challenge to clawhammer. I never got tired of hearing Doc Watson do it with his sound effects and incredible guitar runs.

I've heard the first song, but didn't learn it until it was played at the end of a Thomas Hart Benton documentary. Salt Creek was the last picking song I learned as a novice picker who changed over to clawhammer, and then much later back to picking.

From the Walter family's 1930's recording and in the Milliner Koken book. This is a dance tune whose title can be literally sung in the B part.

Played by Kentucky legendary fiddler Buddy Thomas. Every time I learn one of his tunes I feel like I'm doing extra credit homework for a master's thesis. They're always challenging -- he was a heckuva a fiddler!

The Cat Came Back is the Tune of the Week for April 5th, 2013. This one doesn't sound like the TOTW, though I've now learned that this folksong from my childhood does have older roots. The closest one I've heard seems to be Fiddlin' John Carson's recording in the 20's. My first graders here sing it for the first time.
