Good morning, Fiddlers!

You'll learn that I'm a fan of making & editing videos and usually I'm on the one end of the camera, much like this video below. I am testing my editing abilities with hopes to offer other bands some video work. My wife helped me out here and did a pretty good job. If you have a cellphone and computer, anyone can do this! I'm hopeful to get some footage of the whole band soon but for now, here was a test from yesterday of a song I recently learned. Thanks for watching!

I first heard this song from my friends the Hotmud Family: youtu.be/VVsBFLdycYg
He's gone now, but I was thinking about this song the other day and wondered if Bruce ever came to think of this song as a bit ... harsh maybe?

That group was originally a trio of Dave and Suzanne Edmundson and Rick Good. I think they looked at their zodiac signs - Earth, water and fire = Hotmud!

Is that you singing and playing? Lovely!
Room for a fiddle break in there, too... :-)

That's me. Lonely without a fiddle break! I may never get to a level where me playing the fiddle makes sense so.....lol

Great version

That was a song was working on earlier this year. 

Here is one of my rough drafts. No fiddle

I had worked up a couple of other different versions with fiddle including a more uptempo stringband version (in 4/4)

Here's the very rough draft of 4/4 version for our stringband; bit of experiment. We ended up using this version for a few performances. But I think I like the slow sad version better.

I said earlier I was wondering about how Bruce Phillips might have come to feel about this song. Turns out his feelings are on record, and now on YouTube: youtu.be/TzSRPxqdtyc

I don't know who I first heard sing that one - Joan Baez, maybe? It grabbed me, and I learned it and used to sing it ... but I think I became a little troubled by the viciousness of the poetic fantasy of violence against womankind. I assume that Phillips consciously or unconsciously borrowed the idea for the metaphor from traditional songs in which hunting, ploughing, and other manly activities are compared to courting and seducing, but he takes it to a dark place ....
