I had never heard of Jimmy Tripplett before - I assume that he might be related to another WV Fiddler, Lee Tripplett. Anyway, he recorded this great album of Lee Hammons tunes. I think that its free although he accepts donations
Oh that's so cool. Thanks for sharing!
Yes, both the playing and recording are really good. I always love to find solo fiddle recordings of which there doesn’t seem to be too many.
After discovering this new recording by reading the original post (thanks), I set out to learn some of the tunes as played by Jimmy Triplett. So far, I’ve managed to get Wild Hog in the Red Brush and Falls of Richmond under my fingers. I’m not quite playing them with the beauty and balance he manages. I emailed Mr. Triplett concerning tunings. He replied
that most of the tunes are cross-tuned G or A with a few exceptions. He also at times tunes a bit low to match pitch with Lee Hammons.
Thanks for this. I actually just e-mailed him as well about this.
NIce. Let us know if he’s finished the liner notes.
