Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
All of us have heard the commonly played version of "Mississippi Sawyer" in the key of D. A less common version is one played by groups such as the Foghorn Stringband or The Tallboys and in the key of A; it's a whole different tune with an extra 2/4 measure thrown into the A part. In this multitrack recording I made of myself playing, I used two fiddles, clawhammer banjo, a bass, and a "simulated banjo uke," which involved muting and strumming a 5 string banjo. If anyone should like any details about how I muted the 5-string banjo to obtain that "banjo uke sound" when strumming, send me a private message and I'll email details and a couple of photographs.
