For the old-time Tune of the Week, 3/9/18, Jimmy in the Swamp comes from the fiddle playing of Nebraska great Bob Walters. It's in the key of G and I'm playing in guitar tuning gDGBE. Most banjo players play it in G tuning.

Oh wow, this has melodic 3 finger written all over it. And again, I believe it has reference to my neck of the woods? Anyway, as always, a beautiful rendition miss Janet!

Thanks. Another one for you to offer TOTW, Greg? Though it had Kentucky roots, its notiness reminds me of fiddle tunes from other parts of the country.

Very nice tone and playing, Janet! I need to listen to it more: It sounds like the B part is in a minor key--maybe E minor?--while the A part is in G. Does that sound right to you?

Yes, Lew, you’re right about the chords. And I was using my Mac Traynham banjo. Thanks!
