This is a great tune! And the original recording is great but difficult to play along with at 83 cents (or so) shy of D.

Here it is once through with the pitch adjusted to D. To be looped...

Nearly seven years ago, my friend, Bill Paine, very kindly shared with me hours-and-hours worth of his Clifftop jam recordings. This was all before I'd ever picked up a fiddle, but had only threatened to learn the instrument. I listened to those CDs over and over on my drive cross country, to my new home and my new pastime. They were so enjoyable to listen to. I loved the tunes and the late night banter. Nothing was cut or edited out. I could hear folks joining and leaving my buddie's jam circle, with occasional introductions being made as musicians joined the group. Anyhow, of everything, one tune really stood out for me, hooked me. It was "Granddad's Favorite" and it's become one of my all-time favorites. Thanks, Bill, for sharing it.

MIDI derived largely from the Milliner Koken transcription, with double-stops from Titon. Converted to mp3.

'Heard this tune for the first time at local jam by a fine fiddler, who learned it from Geoff Seitz. Here's my go at it, playing it slowly after listening to the IllMoBoys.

I learned this recently (still working on it) in a fiddle class with Karen Heil, who learned it from Jeff Goehring, who learned it from Lonnie Seymour. You can hear Lonnie play the tune here: https://fieldrecorder.bandcamp.com/album/frc-403-lonnie-seymour-recordings-from-the-collection-of-jeff-goehring. Also, Kenny Jackson, and Tricia Spencer have nice recordings of the tune on their respective CDs.

Turn the volume DOWN :)

For the May 2016 Virtual Fiddle Festival. This is me attempting to play the tune as it was played by WS Collins and transcribed in Marion Thede's book. I also listened to Brad Leftwich's version while learning the tune.
