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

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 11/24/17, Ida Red is also known as Down the Road. This is Tommy Jarrell's version. When I learned Down the Road it was Earl Scrugg's version. It's neat to have these two icons linked through this song. I'm playing on a brand new Randy Shelton "The Ironsides Banjo Co." mountain banjo--quite fun!

Like those slides Janet; your mountain banjo sounds good. I'm slowly trying to build one myself, but with few tools and a complete lack of woodworking experience it's gonna take awhile. :>|

Thanks, Rick. This new banjo is a gem. As lightweight as plastic. The builder, Randy Shelton is a cabinetry man boyhood to college, from college to the Navy and a cabinet business, now on to retirement and is entranced with making banjos.

Very nice, janet. I believe this is the first time I have heard you sing, you should make a habit of it.

Thanks, Don. I put my singing to use in a few venues. But I like playing much more. :)

Nice work with the fretless! Vocals pretty sweet too. Don’t know how you get anything done wasting all your time on this music foolishness 😃. I hope you know I’m kidding
