John Henry, Round Peak style. AEAE. Learned from the playing of Fred Cockerham, IIRC. There are some bowings in this that I don't use for any other tune. 2/3 of the way through, a train went by, and I almost stopped playing, but then I realized it FIT!

You've got great control of that tone... I agree with you that it has a lot in common with T Jarrell... which is a great sound to get out of a fiddle.
I don't know if you ever saw it, but I have a video of myself and a friend playing a version of John Henry, a Fred Cockerham's version, but it's quite different from yours...
I think the one I took mine from was on that Clawhammer banjo record he made with Kyle Creed and George Stoneman.
Nice recording... I like the train...

Your instrument has a beautiful ringing resonance that comes out really well in this tune.

Truth be told, part of that beautiful ringing resonance is a touch of a reverb effect.
The fiddle tends to sound VERY dry in the small room I'm recording in.
I use just enough of the Swedish AMBIENCE reverb plug-in to make it sound like I'm playing in a normal small room, say at a coffeehouse.
It's a very realistic sounding reverb plug-in.
