I was watching an Appalshop documentary on strip mining the other night. They always have great music and this was one of the tunes played. So here's my attempt at a simple, pretty tune. 2-finger syle in double D

2-finger aDADE tuning. The recording stuff on the computer is off somehow and made things sound kind of scratchy.

aDADE tuning 2-finger picking. Art Stamper got this from his daddy Hiram, Will Keys got it from Art, we got it from Will. It's a completely different tune from the A tune(s) with the same name.

This tune comes from Ernie Carpenter who was flooded off his family land by the daming of the Elk River. He didn't go easily. His tune is a sad one. I hope I do it justice. I learned it from Betty Vornbrock who learned it from Mr Carpenter. I like the way it leaves you hanging at the end. 2-finger style in open G

2-finger style aDADE tuning This is the last tune we ever played for Will Keys. I had just learned it and playing it for him was an honor. I had posted this here before but wasn't happy with it. So hopefully this is a better job of it.

I got this from Ken Perlman's recent (May '07?) tab in Banjo Newsletter. I took some liberties with Ken's arrangement to adapt it to 2-finger style and to make it my own. Since I've never heard it played, I don't really know how "right" it is. D/D tuning, 2finger style.
