This old-time Tune of the Week, 3/31/17, came from the playing of Kentucky fiddler Manon Campbell who learned it from his aunt. The story is that a boat was caught in a slow whirlpool at Coal Harbor Bend and didn't realize that the dance tune they kept hearing, thinking they were floating downriver, was from the same gathering at the house by the river. My arrangement comes from fiddler Rhys Jones of the group Bigfoot.

For the old-time Tune of the Week. I learned this listening to Don Borchelt and Ed Britt. Instead of using double D tuning for the key of D, I'm in open G and tuned down the 5th string to an A note. That may be a little quirky I suppose, but sounds okay to me and avoids the dissonance when playing the open G chord in the second measure.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, this version comes from Illinois fiddler Jim Reed on the Dear Old Illinois CD set, ready to be re-released soon. Cora Dye was the name of a musician who taught Mr. Reed, but the original name may have been Old Sage Friend. See the TOTW: http://www.banjohangout.org/topic/305004. Hope you enjoy this delicate first effort to learn the tune.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 10/17/14, as played by Clyde Davenport. Learning this tune has got me looking at an old Christmas present I got one year called Homemade Instruments by Dallas Cline. Wouldn't that be a fun one to make!

A tune learned from the playing of North Carolina fiddler Marcus Martin (1881 - 1974). I hear a sad and serious melody.

TOTW August 6, 2021 "Cousin Sally Brown" via Gaither Carlton

Many of us know a Cousin Sally Brown with an evocative modal tuning. This is a different melody. The source is Gaither Carlton, to me known as the father-in-law of the more famous Doc Watson. My arrangements here come from Gaither, Doc, and another banjo player of the region, Calvin Cole. I'm playing on the slower side. Check out the TOTW to hear more, especially Paul Brown.

At a music camp dance several years ago, Kit and I heard Heidi Claire fiddling this as the traditional last song of a dance. We just had to learn it and found a notated source by Elena Corey when she was active in the California Bluegrass Association. Here's our banjo/mandolin duet.

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 1/20/17, this is a favorite Texas waltz my husband, Kit, and I have enjoyed. Don Borchelt does a great job covering its history if you check it out, and has lots of examples, including two superb videos of his own.

An original tune for Tune of the Week, 10/23/20, by a musician to admire, fiddler Joe Herrmann. He says the title came from an incident of coyotes marauding his wife's sheep, killing four and injuring one. Employing a sheepdog in the pasture later solved the problem, but the coyotes still howled. However, they also stayed away. I'm in sawmill tuning, an appropriate choice for this title.

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.
