Genre: Old Time / Playing Style: Clawhammer and Old-Time
For this week's old time Tune of the Week (8/26/16) one of my favorite tunes learned from my lessons with Adam Hurt has been chosen. I've already recorded Old Beech Leaves a couple of times, so I thought I'd listen to the source recording and try arranging it in another tuning. This one is worked out in open G tuning, played on my cello banjo (so actually tuned down to an open C). It was recorded from the rather rough playing of a Kentucky fiddler from Logan County, Sid Hudnall, who lived with his family pretty much isolated from the rest of the world. Check out the TOTW for more info and tab of Adam's version (with his permission).

That tune goes real well with the CB.

Thanks, Rick. Your open-minded, positive thoughts are always welcome! With those arpeggio-like Galax licks in part A the cello banjo's natural sustaining tone was useful.
