Tunaday #268. Didn't have a name for this so since today is the beginning of my 70th year, why not. A neat little tuning - g#BEBE - known as Dead Man's" E-tuning. Hope the tuning name has nothing to do with life expectancy; I'd like to hang around on this rock a bit longer.

Happy birthday Rick! Spirited tune. How do you keep track of all these tunings? Seems like you use a different one on each of your songs : )

Thanks Greg. Most of the tunes I've been posting lately are from a tune writing project I did a couple of years ago in which I tried to compose one tune per day for a year. A sub-objective of that project was to try out a bunch of different tunings new to me. I think I tried 24 different tunings during the project. For my normal clawhammer playing I typically keep to Double C or Sawmil,l and for 3 finger mostly G tuning.

Hope your special day was banjoyful. The tune sounds upbeat but realistic, accepting and happy to be picking.

Thanks Janet. Always happy to be able to pick, but the best part of the day was having lunch with 3 of our 4 grandchildren and our daughter-in-law.

Will ya still need me, will ya still feed when, when I'm 64? Well, this ain't Lennon/McCartney, but... mayhaps during their Sgt. Pepper Days? Tuning hints of that Eastern drone vibe. Meditate... Radiate... repeat... . Cheers and Many More!!!

Thanks Ken. Fortunately nobody has to feed me, or change me, yet. Hoping to keep it that way for awhile!
