"Jack of All Trades" is a tune I learned from Melvin Wine and has over the last five years, or so, become almost a standard in some of the jams that I play in. From the Vintage Wine cassette notes "This old tune comes from Melvin's father." I did try to find more information on the tune on line and from Drew Beisswenger, who wrote a Ph.D. thesis on Melvin, but we both came up blank. Banjo - gDGde

Nice old tune and a neat title and intro. It feels like something Henry Reed might have known, a good WV tune, though he probably didn’t. I don’t think I could play it that fast, but I will sure be trying.
