It's one month to the day since I had my wrist surgery and I'm back in the game! Here's my contribution, recorded on my phone, since I was too lazy to do it on my computer. Anyway, here we go! https://www.fiddlehangout.com/myhangout/media-player/audio_player2.asp?musicid=14567&archived=

Wow...back after one month! Congratulations and welcome back to the world of fiddling, Donna!

Sounds great! Sounds like that wrist is totally back. Great job with that ol' cricket on the hearth...nice fiddling.

I feel like I've never heard of this tune in my whole life...lol...I must've been busy in TN when VFF did this...please don't tell me I played it...lol...I really do not remember it at all. I know I'm probably going crazy, but I hope not as bad as it seems...lol. 

 

 

July 2014 VFF. There would be no other reason for me to learn it as it wouldn't have crossed my path without VFF. I have a bunch of tunes on my list that came from VFF. 

Attached is my solo version from back then. It's a barn burner, whereas the one with banjo is more dance tempo. I also noticed that I posted the banjo one at minutes past midnight, literally as early as possible angel


That end literally rocks hahalaugh

Love this version as well!

This one is pretty hard for me to do, but played the first part slow and I must admit here I use reading notes. It goes too fast to play by ear to me.
I am having great fun with this topic however. You are all gifted players.
(I still feel struggling, at the moment I absolutely want to learn vibrato)
Might give it another try later on.

I loved that cat picking the tune, she is adorable <3

Pete, so cool, really enjoyed that, it's great!

Well, here I am playing with Peggy's backing track, which I love! Thank you Peggy.

My cricket noises are SO bad, I do think I succeeded at sounding like a Donkey, HEE-HAW.
( So I threw in some artificial cricket noises, with cricket getting more and more disobedient as tune goes on...)


Wow, this is so cool!

I uploaded a MIDI version as well i think it is in the "Tabs"....But i cant seem to attach it to this post

Sort of got it down on fiddle but not up to speed yet he plays it just over 120bpm i think!


Thank you for sharing! That will help me in the beginning.

Quincy...I think you're doing great. Dwight Diller calls it a situation of being, "Desperate to play," and you just really wanna advance faster than the speed of light. I guess we're all like that and especially in the early years of playing. We can, of course, slow things down or do whatever is necessary to play the tune for ourselves...no laws against that and I've always resorted to messin' with the tune to make it user-friendly for myself. Almost time for our next tune...I live in fear that we will pick Old Time Jam's only C tune...Billy in the Lowground...lol...boy that'll sure be a struggle for me if we get that one. Anyway, I think you're doing great...let's see what gets picked this time...hope it's something that we can easily handle...part of the fun is ... it might just be Billy in the Lowground...or worse...lol...let's hope for an easy one though. It's Bob's turn to pick again so I gotta wrangle him down to get him to get one for us soon.

Never too late, Randy! I love your version...it's so fiddly and just very laid back...nice job. Sounds good.

Thanks Peggy, learning some new tunes will be some good medicine for me. I’ve enjoyed everyone’s playing.
