After learning the Tom Bigbee Waltz the other night I started digging for more tunes that are usually played out of GDGD, since I won't go into a tuning for just two or three tunes, and I want to get a block of GDGD tunes together so I can introduce them at the jam.
Well, so far almost every one I've found that is normally played there is Crooked with a capital C. Yew Piney Mountain, Trouble on my Mind, Christmas Morning, Elk River Blues, Jenny In The Cotton Patch, Newt Payne, Jeff Sturgeon . . . geez, the only two I found that aren't, so far, are Pretty Little Shoes and Gimme A Chaw Of Tobacco.
Anybody got any suggestions for GDGD tunes that aren't Jam Busters? I love these crooked tunes and I'm finally getting my head wrapped around them in a way that makes 'em playable, but my jam bunch can barely "get" Paddy on the Pike! If I throw them into a whole POOL of crooked tunes the whole group of 'em will drown for sure!11 comments
