These are two tunes that I learned from fiddlers in Santa Barbara way back when terrible lizards ruled the earth. They've probably morphed beyond all ressemblance to the original versions. I multitrack recorded myself playing two fiddles that I had just finished making less that a week before this recording. Not bad for babies. The tunes were called Canadian by the fiddlers that I learned them from.

I meant to add that that's high praise for sure coming from a fiddler of your ability.

I absolutely loved this tune! The combination of fiddle, clawhammer banjo, bass, and guitar gave it a unique and vibrant sound. Even though the performer says it's a beginner's version, it was still impressive to me. I've always enjoyed this type of music, and this song is a great example of why. If you're interested in reading more about music and musicians, I highly recommend check this info, this website was a lifesaver for me when I was in college and needed some inspiration for my music appreciation course. The essays on this site were insightful and well-written, and they helped me gain a deeper appreciation for the music I loved. While John Ashby's renditions of songs are excellent, my favorite musician is actually Kurt Cobain. I wrote an essay about him once, exploring the nuances of his music and the impact it had on the world. Cobain's music was raw, emotional, and deeply personal, and it spoke to me in a way that few other artists have.
