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

From Etta Baker for the old-time Tune of the Week for 12/12/14. This tune is compared to a fandango. Etta learned it from her brother-in-law, who learned it from his father. It's the first fandango-type tune I've learned and the first I've learned from Etta Baker, who many people have admired. She picked this one 2-finger style on banjo. I'm using clawhammer

A full resonant sound. A simple I-IV-V tune but lots in there worth exploring. Very nice.

This always reminds me of "What Stumped the Bluejay" by Samuel Clemons. My mind is cluttered that way.

Janet, your playing is always a pleasure to listen to, and you do a fine job of playing this beautiful and gentle tune.

Thanks, Rick, Rick and Debs. The "fandango" is something Stephen Wade wrote a long chapter on it, but I still have much to learn about it. My mind thinks thematically, so one fandango would remind me of another, but this is my first one, so my mind remains uncluttered thus far!
