While exploring the Slippery Hill site I came across four versions of Wolves A-Howling. Two were Bruce Molsky's source, too. I used the one by John A. Brown. His photo is a classic one for the LP Great Big Yam Potatoes. See it in the Sound Off thread, as well as the complete liner notes for this rare album from Mississippi. Do you think the wolves are literal or figurative? I was thinking they could be creditors or the bank wanting their money you don't have....

Earl Collins played this tune and it's the old-time Tune of the Week for Oct. 14, 2016. Earl was the one who came to my guitar teacher's home for a jam when I was a fledgling banjo player and I remember him well, smiling and encouraging me. The title is appropriate for the wrestling I'm doing with my 95 year-old mother to convince her that she needs more help at home or to move into a retirement home. She's a fierce, independent wildcat! My playing here is a little tame, as are my efforts to be forceful with my mother...

I heard Bill Monroe's version and learned it. It's a fun one.

For this week's Tune of the Week for 1/17/20 here's an old song that is actually a Missouri battalion's motto with a dog on their emblem. The write-up is real thorough and in good humor, too. Check it out!

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 12/10/15, the other titles for this song are Kingdom Coming and Lincoln's Gunboats, which I found very interesting. I'm playing on a George Wunderlich minstrel banjo.

Just one time through, as a study of Buddy Thomas' fiddling.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/23/18, this version comes from Earl Collins, Missouri fiddler who moved to LA. He was at my guitar teacher's house one night for a jam and he encouraged me greatly as a budding banjo playing college student. My guitar teacher really got around -- Mary Ellen Clark just turned 90 and still plays and dances a bit. She taught me The Cat Came Back, which was about a yellow cat.

Learned from Alabama fiddler James Bryan. Anything he plays is golden melody in my ears.

Dwight Diller plays this beautifully with a tuned-down banjo and a different tuning than I arranged, but it's nice to play it in modal tuning. It's like the epitome of modal flavor to me.

I decided to record this again, faster, and compare it to the first recording. This one has more of a lilt and driving rhythm.

This version of the old-time Tune of the Week comes from the iconic fiddler Bruce Greene, who visited Hiram Stamper in Knott County, Kentucky. It's a crooked piece and has only hints of the Clinch Mountain Backstep it's said to have influenced.

The old-time Tune of the Week for April 5, 2019 is Young Edward from Hiram Stamper. This arrangement is from his fiddling son, Charlie Stamper, (1930-2014). Clinch Mountain Backstep is definitely felt here and it's been said, but not proven, that Ralph Stanley may have learned the melody from Hiram.

This is the last song in Dan's book Buzzard Banjo Clawhammer Style. It's in a modified double C tuning played on a Gold Tone cello banjo.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/5/16 I learned this one listening to the fiddling of Dwight Lamb. He learned it from Bob Walters and it's in keeping with those Missouri tunes that are very notey, resembling a hornpipe to my ears. I appreciate LyleK's reason for choosing it: he thought we needed at least one tune that starts with a Z. This will go well with my "Granny's tabs A-Z" notebook where I also needed a Z tune. Coincidentally, I had just got a 1999 CD of Dwight Lamb's called "Joseph Won a Coated Fiddle."
