Notes: I learned this tune off of a Erynn Marshall DVD. It wasn't one of the tunes that were taught on the DVD but I heard enough of it to get the melody. It is one of my new favorite waltzes.

Notes: Composed by Newfoundland box player Ray Johnson, of Buddy Wasisname and The Other Fellers. The tune title refers to the old single cylinder gas motors used long ago on the fishing dories. These motors contained 1, sometimes 2, flywheels to keep the engine turning until the next firing sequence.

Notes: This song is played only on the two middle strings in the key of D. You can also play it in the key of A on the two highest strings, or in the key of G on the two lowest strings. The banjo part was inspired by Stan Stack over at Banjo Hangout!

Notes: This is a transcription of the recording on http://slippery-hill.com/RP/018-MoneyMusk.mp3. It bears little resemblance to the transcription in Christeson. It's a great example of the best in Missouri Valley Old Time music, with 4 parts and variations on two of them. Not to hard to play, but can sure befuddle the ear. I've played through it a lot, comparing it with the recording, and I think I have it pretty much right. Christeson's reed organ drowns out the fiddle in some places, and the fidelity of the wire recorder adds to the difficulty of hearing, as well.
