Kind of like "Flop-Eared Mule," but different. This is in regular G tuning.

Fiddle alert! Sam and Elzie was posted as a tune of the week, and I thought it sounded familiar. On asking, I was reminded that the Illinois name is Crooked Road, and I had played along with it 6 days previously! I've been messing with it on the fiddle, but I had to clip out a small bit of what I had recorded to end up with something that had the minimum number of mistakes.

This is from our October 8, 2008 jam night. It's early in the evening so we are just one fiddle, a hammered dulcimer, 2 guitars, 2 mandolins and I am on the cello banjo. Our fast fiddler had not yet shown up. I have seen this tune published in A, but as far as I can remember we have always played it in D around here. In going through my old copy of Miles Krassens book I found a tune list of mine from around 1981 and I had it in D then, although I do not remember where I learned it. Maybe from Lyle.

Played on the tackhead. I'm at home on dialup so I made the file small (64bit). So, you may need to download it to hear it right.

Doesn't seem as though anyone plays this nowadays. This is an A tune, but I may not be quite tuned to pitch.

I haven't looked into the history of this tune, but I sure like it. I've played along with it a few time over the years. Last month we had a mini-festival in Springfield (IL) and after the performance was done seven of us stayed around to play some more. After doing "Rocky Road to Jordan" Laura S (fiddler) started "Dubuque" and it really grabbed me this time. Now it's been my obsession tune on fiddle for a couple of weeks, but last night I found that it's fun as solo banjo, too.

A great tune composed by Garry Harrison. I've played along with a several times over the past few years, but last night I played along with Lylek also on banjo. It just got to me, so here is a quick version. I'm approximately in standard A tuning, and playing my aluminum banjo.

This an excerpt from the Red Prairie Dawn cd by Garry Harrison And The Mule Team. After the cd went out of print Garry had it available for download for a while. I'm just putting this up for educational purposes associated with a TOTW.

I was listening to an old TOTW called Arkansas Hoosier, and was reminded of Durang's Hornpipe. I don't think I had ever played it solo before so I listened to a few versions on BHO (there are many). Here is a version I just recorded to help me remember the tune.

I learned this years ago from the Miles Krassen book, and this recording is from July, 2006.

I am at work, waiting for something. So I decided to play this. This is that old aluminum banjo, and tuned to something like double-C tuning.
