My favorite song on the Songcatcher album, where it is played by author Julie Miller and Gillian Welch. There's a YouTube video set to that version at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZU1GrR5ET5k I'm playing it in gDGBD.

Melvin Wine tune that I learned from Lisa Ornstein. It's a modal tune, but I'm playing it in aEAC#E, because I learned it with a bunch of A tunes for a square dance and didn't want to hassle with going to A modal tuning.

This is a tune that I noodled out late one night while my wife was away on a month long meditation retreat at Arunachala in India. This tune is done with all two finger pinches.

Learned from The Macrae Sisters' new CD "Old Sledge" where Gabrielle Macrae plays it much better than I do. Mine is still a work in progress, but it's such a cool tune that I wanted to share it. From the playing of Eck Robertson. aEAC#E.

This was just a porch practice session for an upcoming square dance last summer and just recorded on an iPhone.

I learned this song on guitar years ago from (I think) a Trapezoid album. I think it's the first song that I worked out for clawhammer banjo. Martha Scanlon sings it much better than I do on her latest album.
