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

A recent old-time Tune of the Week ( included one of the two tunes recorded in the 1920's for Okeh records by Dudley Vance (1880 - 1962) and his Tennessee Breakdowners. Here's the other tune, encouraged for me to learn in one of my Skype lessons with Adam Hurt. This tune was recorded along with a square dance caller. You can hear my banjo picking up on the fiddler's role in this tune to provide lots of dance rhythm.

If I could dance, I could dance to that!

Reminds me of 'bout a dozen other old-time tunes, but manages it's own flavor... well played as usual Janet.

As usual, right on the money, Ken. Those of us who don't dance, pick!

Cool foot-tappin music Janet! If you could clog while playing you'd get some extra rythem notes!
