Bret had posted a very good TOTW volunteers required rally call; he should be a recruiting sergeant big

One of the very very important things in his extremely comprehensive post was this

I thought to  post it here on the sticky so it's easier to find in future & to do an alphabetical search.

Thank you for reporting it. I do copy-and-paste-then-edit to do each addition to the index, and sometimes I miss a step. I have now changed the topic ID from 267521 to 267958, which should fix the problem.

THANKS!  I'm playing this Saturday with some friends at an event where the "stages" are a couple of front porches on two 19th-century buildings in a newly developed park.  http://makemusicny.org/summer-schedule/2014/features/porch-stomp/.    We want to be able to say something about each tunes to an audience with many who are not familiar with old time music, so the TOTW information is great.

And yes, please make it a sticky. -- Howard

Dear Clawhammer players,

I love what you guys do and I'm trying to master the style.  Could anyone please tell me the name of the wonderful old tune in the YouTube video below?  Thanks, I appreciate your kind attention (and your great banjo music). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tOPDk8KtVbA

It's a nice version of Mississippi Sawyer, a TOTW in 2012. Now archived, so maybe some of the links won't work.

Here's the info from the Fiddlers Companion:

CHINQUAPIN/CHINQUIPIN. AKA and see "Too Young to Marry," "Sail Away Ladies [3]." Old‑Time, Breakdown. USA, Virginia. G Major. Standard tuning. AABB. The tune is known to fiddlers Roscoe Parish (Galax, Va.) as "Chinquapin," while Tommy Jarrell (Mt. Airy, N.C.) has recorded it as "Sail Away Ladies" (it is not related to the tunes that usually go by that title). Source for notated version: Roscoe Parrish (Va.) [Phillips]. Phillips (Traditional American Fiddle Tunes), vol. 2, 1995; pg. 31. Heritage V, Roscoe Parish. Rounder 0320, Bob Carlin & John Hartford - "The Fun of Open Discussion."

I'm on for TOTW tomorrow and I'm having a hard time finding the most recent list so I can avoid duplication. I know I've seen one! Will someone please post the link for me? Thanks!

Here is the TOTW catch-up list link. https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/334697/. I have the liner notes you asked about at home. I’ll be home within a couple of hours.

Here is what the liner notes say: 10. Chinquapin Key of D, banjo tuned gCGCD, capo 2. Source: Carroll Best. Carroll, a banjoist from Clyde in Western North Carolina, learned this tune from his father. It is one of several tunes named for the edible dwarf chestnuts. Looking forward to your post for TOTW, @Cyndy!  (I hope I tagged you correctly.)

Hi, 

I've volunteered to do a tune of the week by PM several times, but never heard back. Is there any reason for that?

Note: The problem was apparently that I was writing to the person who started this thread, but he is no longer running it. My bad!
