For the old-time Tune of the Week, 7/7/17 Lazy Kate was recorded at the beginning of the 1930's buy a Mississippi stringband called Leake County Revelers. In the key of D, I put it in what's equivalent to open G tuning on the cello banjo (dADF#A). For an easy-sounding tune, it was a bit challenging to arrange, but easier for me to play than in double D tuning. Easier playing makes for a better end-result, don't you think?!

The song has a good feel to it. It flows but doesn't sound "lazy"at all!

Thank you, Richard. No, it does not sound lazy, and the TOTW poster speculated that lazy Kate is the name of a little contraption that would make sewing easier. So I can imagine being busy at work with loom and threads while hearing this tune.

Really nice arrangement, Janet. Sounds like there ought to be words.

Thanks, Pat. Writing lyrics is hard, but good ones are sure fun to sing.
