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

For the old-time Tune of the Week, 2/23/18, this version comes from Earl Collins, Missouri fiddler who moved to LA. He was at my guitar teacher's house one night for a jam and he encouraged me greatly as a budding banjo playing college student. My guitar teacher really got around -- Mary Ellen Clark just turned 90 and still plays and dances a bit. She taught me The Cat Came Back, which was about a yellow cat.

Nice JanetB. Don't tell anyone, but I wait until you post an arrangement of a TOTW before attempting a song :-). Your playing is clear, and your arrangements tickle my ears.

While not familiar with this tune, it seems very comfortable, as though I have enjoyed it in the past. I’m sure it was Janetized for our listening pleasure. Clear and clean, no caffeine, and a joy to listen to!

I’m glad my banjo has some friendly ears! Adah the banjo is a sensitive little girl, but solid and eager to be played. We’re working on a James Bryan tune tonight. Here’s a heads-up for Friday: TOTW is Sandy River Belle. Greg, you ought to post yours, too. Bluegrassers play it as well as old-timers.
