A few weeks ago, I posted about some information on Ward Jarvis. Some great FHO folks really came through with supplying additional recordings of Jarvis I was seeking. I'm dedicating this year to learning some Ward Jarvis tunes, specifically: 

  1. Head of the Creek
  2. Three Forks of Reedy
  3. Pretty Little Indian
  4. Cattle in the Cane
  5. Icy Mountain
  6. Tomahawk

I thought I would use this space to discuss my progress and challenges, as well as to get some input from some of the fiddling veterans around hear or anyone interested in talking about Ward Jarvis, his music and life in West Virginia and Ohio. 

I started off working on "Head of the Creek," on the Field Recorders Collective release FRC402. Here's my progress after a month of working on the tune. I will post other tunes as I go along, and perhaps updates on some tunes after more seasoning. I'd appreciate your comments and criticisms. Thanks for checking in.

Sounds good...you'd get more responses probably by putting these types on the soundoff forum, I think.  I like your playing...sounded good.

Thanks for the kind words, Peggy. I actually did post this in Sound Off, though apparently forgot to include the link to the tune. That error has been fixed.

Thanks, Guy. Still got some warts, but it was good to play it in front of others.

Just thought I'd provide an update. I took another crack at recording myself. Any comments are welcome.
