Two versions alternate. The first one comes from Tommy Jarrell's Round Peak style, as taught to me by Adam Hurt. The second is my clawhammered rendition of the classic Scrugg's style first lesson taught in 3-finger style. The bluesy notes of Tommy Jarrell's compares with the major tones of the Scrugg's style, though both have slides.

Marion Thede was an Oklahoma native who notated fiddle tunes throughout the states in the late 1920's and The Fiddle Book is still sought after by old-time music fans. For the Tune of the Week, 8/10/18, a three-part Cripple Creek as performed by J.S. Prise, originally from Mississippi who had moved to Oklahoma, is hereby introduced. It's fun to play as you hear the traditional song embedded in this unique version.

There's a mysterious sound to this tune, as if crossing those mountains wasn't an easy or safe thing to do. I enjoyed figuring it out with the melodic style, and then chordally.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/7/14, I'm learning that Cuffy is the name of several historic figures in the era of slavery. I'm impressed there's even a Guyana silver dollar coin with Cuffy's image. The timing of the tune feels unusual, but the only crooked part would be a half measure between the A and B parts. It's the melody itself that has an interesting path. Check out this week's TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/294064

A slow-fast arrangement on gourd. I was trying to get more gourd sustain in the recording.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 5/30/14, from Kentucky fiddler Clyde Davenport, recorded by Jeff Titon and in his book "Old-Time Kentucky Fiddle Tunes." The timing in the A part feels like it has African-American influence--something I'd like to know more about. For tabbing the tune I used two measures of 4/4 timing followed by a measure of 2/2 timing.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/15/14, learned from BHO member ajisai's fiddling. She learned it from an old violin instruction book of the early 1900's. Without a historic recording to go by, this reminds me of the manner in which Turlough O'Carolan's tunes were learned and carried on. Someone notated them and published them and we're all better off for knowing his beautiful music.

Liquor Seller came from James Bryan's fiddling, but I discovered that Roscoe Parish of Virginia recorded it on both banjo and fiddle and assume he's the source. I chose Darling Corey because of its similar theme and the fact that I was looking for a tune with the mixolydian mode to go with Liquor Seller.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 8/4/17, West Virginia fiddler Delbert Hughes (1905 -1982) recorded this one. It sounds like Davy is responding in the B part with his grievances, which he finds reasonable enough. I think this story ends where he comes back home....

This is one beautiful song when performed by Gillian and David. Kit and I were inspired when we saw them on the Chieftains Nashville Session and wanted to do this duet. Kit's mandolin on melody was so nice I chose to stay with harmony and hope it supports him.

This tune comes from the repertoire of Bluegrass boy Kenny Baker. He learned it from his father, Thaddeus, and said he only heard it played by his family. I used Garage Band to combine my Mac Traynham Whyte Laydie openback with my Gold Tone cello banjo.

Samuel Bayard collected this tune from fiddler and fifer Isaac Newton Morris. It's tune #45 in his book Dance to the Fiddle and March to the Fife. I learned it from the excellent recording by Mark Tamsula and Richard Withers in their CD Up in the Batten House. It's one of these tunes where the melody is embedded within some wandering passages. I'm playing in SRB tuning with tab in the BHO archive.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1-28-17, I listened to an Illinois fiddler John Ray "Doc" Corn recording, made on his birthday in 1976. The tune was also recorded by Lynn Chirps Smith, a fiddler whose work I respect and enjoy. There's not much other information yet on this tune other than it had another title that isn't so nice.
