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

I'm playing on a Gold Tone cello banjo, re-strung with nylon strings. In my continuing Skype lessons with Adam Hurt, he encouraged me to listen to Emmett Lundy's fiddling and arrange a tune for clawhammer. Mr. Lundy, from Grayson County, Virginia, born in 1864, is one of many highly-regarded fiddlers from that region. He learned from an elderly fiddler, Greenberry Leonard, born in 1812. Mr. Leonard was said to be one of the very best fiddlers from that region, so studying Lundy's style takes me way back in history. I find that the syncopated and slurred notes of this well-known tune make it stand out as unique and pretty.
