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

This is my clawhammer version based on West Virginia fiddler Edden Hammons. It's also known as Wounded Hoosier or Wounded Hussar. I've also heard the recording from Marcus Martin of North Carolina so I think Mr. Hammons learned it without knowing the title at the time.

very nice. I really like the tone of this banjo. What sort of banjo is it?

Thanks, Lew. Mac Traynham of Willis, VA made this special Whyte Laydie. I once got to jam with him in Floyd and found this banjo recently on the BHO Classifieds. Funny, but my husband had been saying I should order one from Mac.

I really enjoy listening to your arrangement and style for playing this tune. I also appreciate the additional information about it too. I am only familiar with hearing Edden Hammons and Jake Krack. Could you tell me the tuning you are playing with and maybe if you have sheet music or tab.

Thanks, Tish. I have a hand- written tab that needs to be tabbed with the TablEdit program. It's finger-picked. Do you prefer that or clawhammer?

Great, clawhammer or standard music notation. Thanks. I'll message you my email....

Give me a bit of time and I'll get it to you. I'll be glad to have a clean tab for my future Granny's A-Z Tab Book. It's for my rocking chair days to come...

Sure thing, I'll check for your email later when I'm home and send the tab.
