Notes: Here is my clawhammer interpretation of Ed Haley's Half Past Four. According to John Hartford, Ed's son Lawrence Haley said Ed wrote this tune about the passing of Sherman Luther, Ed's firstborn boy, who died in childbirth at half past four in the morning. Ed Haley (1885-1951) was a blind fiddler who who traveled widely throughout West Virginia, Ohio, eastern Kentucky and southwestern Virginia, and is known for his powerful fiddling and distinctive repertoire. The tab includes open-string pull-offs marked by bold "PO". The tuning is aEAC#E, which can be reached by tuning the strings up, or by capoing standard G tuning at the second fret.
