Based on Mike Iverson's arrangement and played in G. The lyrics are partly the traditional ones and partly my own composition.

Played in D minor on an Ome Juniper. Melody derived from Wayne Erbson, B part is my own composition. The lyrics combine the traditional and Johnny Cash's Cocaine Blues.

This is a comparison track of a the original no-knot tailpiece against the Ome Sweetone tailpiece i purchased as an upgrade. The first tune is Cold Frosty Morn played in Mountain Minor capo 2 the second tune is Year of Jubilo in Double C no capo. The final tune is Seneca Square Dance but the no-knot version disappeared??? but included the ome version anyhow. First time through is the no-knot with the subsequent being the Ome.

A brief comparison of the Grover compensated bridge that was on my Ome Juniper originally with the Romero bridge Jason made for me. I play three songs, as similarly as possible, in 3 different tunings with the first example of each being the Grover bridge and the subsequent being the Romero. The first is Mole in the Ground in Double C, the second is Shady Grove (including an up the neck portion) in G modal, and the last is Colored Aristocracy in Open G. I didn't shoot for flawless playing as my main purpose was to showcase the very different sound of the Romero since i don't think many folks are using his bridges on non-Romero banjos. I also didn't have all day to get them perfect haha.
