Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time

I recorded this today (11/8/08) on my imac with Vega Deering Tub-a-phone using audacity (the program [;)] for this week's Tune of the Week. As you listen through, you will find that there are actually 2 versions combined in one. The more common one is first, but in the second, which I got from playing it with Bruce Molsky (historical reference on the way, it's not new to Bruce) you will notice the transition to a 4 chord halfway through the first measure and also at the START of the B part. Though it took me a while to reconcile it in my head, I find it a pretty cool variation. You are free or course, to play as you will. Just remember, if you want to play nice with others, you'll have to find common ground.

This is great.  I especially like the second variation of the first version that you play twice before you play the second version that almost sounded like a whole new tune to me.  Or should I have said the first variation.  Very nice.

Lovely! makes me wish yet again, that I could hurry up and achieve some level of competence on BG playing so that I can start having a go at clawhammer too.
