TOTW 24 Nov 2017 Down the Road (Ida Red)
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.

Janet, that was great, love the mountain banjo sound and your voice matched that banjo perfect, to good.

Thanks, Chad. I sure like trying out different kinds of 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
