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

The old-time Tune of the Week for 3/11/16 is Black Jack Grove as recorded by the Lomax's in 1939, played by Texas fiddler Lake N. Porter. The other Black Jack Grove comes from Kentucky fiddler Walter McNew. I play them both here for comparison's sake, which worked out since I arranged them both in open G tuning.

Thanks, Ken and Rick. Adam told me that Mac's Black Jack Grove inspired him to learn it.
