    It's a tie this week, and so I'm just 'casting' the winning vote and declaring Old Yeller Dog Came Trotting Through the Meeting House" as the winner. It was submitted as an Old Time tune. I'm not familiar with it.

    I found this standard notation (for the fiddle)

    Here's a lesson on Mel Bay's mandolin sessions.

    Here are some You Tube videos:

    Something looks awfully familiar here.
    Maybe we can get an update on claw hammer and mandola.

    Great picking Obiwan. What type of axe you chopping with? Beautiful piece.
    Tried my hand at this old tyme fiddle tune. Went strictly by ear on this one. I flubbed a couple of places but o well.
    Still trying to break in the F4 so used it again. 'Clay' is developing a decent tone as the weeks go by. Neat hearing the subtle changes as you play.

    Thanks guys And lady.
    Nice work Sasquatch I love your style .
    Right now I'm playing a weber gallatin but instead of maple it's a solid mahogany back with x bracing.
    It's one of the sweetest sounding mandolins I have played

    Great stuff Obiwan and Sasquatch- you're really tearing this number up.
    My version is based on Wendy Anthony's arrangement.
