I recorded this for a TOTW post. Lynn Morris (who wrote it) plays it in E, others play it in D or C. Just to be different, I transposed it to G, and play it out of standard G tuning.

Recorded at the Centralia Campout 2014. Chris Chapin on fiddle and vocals. George Flink on 6-string banjo. Me playing an old Kalamazoo archtop guitar. There's a lot to be said for very small jams.

Recorded at an old time jam at the Tucson Folk Festival, 2013. Mandolin: Dave Firestine. Bass: Jerry Weinert. Accordion: Russ Healy. If you can hear a banjo, that's me. It seems that every old time musician in Tucson knows this tune. It's a Tohono O'odham fiddle tune from the indigenous Indians in southern Arizona -- but I have never found an original recording by them.

This is tune always played in D, but I'm doing it in G just to see if it's possible. It's possible, but it needs a lot of work. This recording is after about 30 minutes of figuring it out and practicing it. If I remember to play it, I might be able to smooth it out eventually. The good news is that it's a lot easier to play (at least for me). The bad news is that I'll never find a fiddler who plays it in G.

Recorded at a parking lot jam at the Tucson Old Time Fiddler's Contest. Mic placement over-emphasizes the banjos: me and George Flink (on 6-string).

A quick demo of a Tune of the Week, in G tuning. Lots of mistakes in this recording, but it has potential.

Recorded at a jam session. Note the almost seamless transition between tunes around 3:05. We rarely get it that good. George on banjo, Lorene on bass, Greg, Martilla, and Whitey on fiddles and Charlie and me on guitar.

This is me on banjo, playing with three superb fiddlers who showed up at our OT jam in Tucson. I'm way out of their league, but I managed to keep up most of the time. Sure was fun. Banjo is a Chuck Lee Vintage Prairieville.

ScottK recorded a great solo version of Sam & Elsie in D. I used Amazing Slow Downer to pitch shift it down to G. Then I played along, using standard G tuning. I also slowed it down a bit so I could keep up. It was used in a Tune of The Week post.

This is for a Tune of the Week. I took Mark Johnson's great recording, pitch-shifted down two half-steps (to G), and added myself playing along on a low-tuned Bowlin (dGDGA).
