Lee Hammons' "Greasy String", a very different tune "Greasy Coat".

Obviously Greasy String! Sorry for the confusion.

Well shucks, it says it can't get to that page! I love Dwight Diller's playing. I've always thought Greasy Coat was a really awkward-sounding tune...but Greasy String is another story. I think anything I ever did hear from Dwight Diller was really really good. Wonder how come I couldn't get to the video?

Peggy, it worked for me before, but now it says "Sorry, we couldn't find that page."

They're pretty interesting. Trouble on Spring Creek, the one with mainly fiddle music, is probably my favourite album of his. I told him that in the few e-mails that I exchanged with him and he was surprised, because it had apparently been panned by some « critics». I wonder who? I know there is a prominent banjo player (Marc Horowitz) that is always crapping on him on YouTube. Anyway, I wish that he would make another album featuring prominently his fiddle playing.

Gonna have to listen...we've been so busy here lately I haven't kept up with anybody on youtube much. I love Dwight's playing...he's a unique old time musician in his own style, yet true to old time, the way real old time and/ or true folk musicians oughta be...lol...in my opinion...and I think a lot of people who wear the blinders and dare not leave the prescribed path just don't get it. I love to hear him play.

I "discovered" Diller in about 1993. Instantly liked him. In Minnesota around 1996 or 7 I met Dick Kimmel who was a friend/bandmate of Dillers in the 60s/70s. I played in Dick's band for a while. Dick Kimmel is a killer clawhammer player who actually taught Diller some licks before Diller got in with the Hammons. At least that's my understanding of it...
