    Baby Ben. It's one of those simple tunes that has three parts, all of which sound the same so it's just impossible to get 'em straight.

    Played lots of new tunes at the Port Townsend Fiddle tunes festival. Now I have to sit down with the Amazing Slow Downer and learn at least some of them in preparation for the next meeting of our old time community of minds, hearts, and fingers.

    I used to play Pike's Peak years ago and have been resuscitating old tunes that I stopped playing. I also picked up Old Billy Hell recently but have to remember how it goes. I will check out the other two — I am not all that familiar with them by name but I also like your taste in tunes, Jim.

    Thanks Jim,
    Interesting timing on your reply. I spent some time last night with Brian Oberlin, whose amazing repertoire includes some challenging Italian mandolin pieces. He didn't know the tune Sogno di Bimba which you once sent me, so I took the liberty of playing your recording to him.

    The high point of playing with some inspired (and inspiring) old time fiddlers at the Fiddle Tunes Festival the other day, was spending an entire evening playing tunes only in the key of C. Those last three tunes in my list came from that session.

    Yah I have some playing experience with about half the tunes on your list. A few of them I know very well including Rocky Pallet, Farewell Trion, and Saturday Night Breakdown.

    I'll definitely check out the ones you mention that I haven't heard yet.

    Here's a few more straggling C tunes from my own list:


    Cherry River Rag
    Oklahoma Redbird
    Uncle Pig
    Fat back meat and dumplings
    Apple Knockers
