    Spending a lot of time these days with Garry Harrison's Red Prairie Dawn cd. He was an amazing contemporary composer, for those who don't know him. Here's a link to a soundcloud page where someone has put up the cd, now out of print and very difficult to find. Right now, Red Prairie Dawn, Dull Chisel, and Ol' Bob are getting a workout.

    Been playing a medley of Loch Lavan Castle/Santa Ana's Retreat/Bonaparte's Retreat and going back to a bunch of other old time tunes.
    Technique, theory and fun, fun, fun. I love playing, studying and sharing MUSIC.

    Learning 2 old-time rags. On the Banks of Kaney and Lynchburg Town.

    Our band took a break from playing contra dances about a year ago. Now I wonder if this new swinging and crooked repertoire means we ought to consider playing for foxtrots and jitterbug. Anybody out in Cafe land doing that with a string band?

    Experimenting with picking double-strings on mandolin, & backing harmony on faux-'tenor' GDAEB guitar. Fiddle tune "Thanksgiving Waltz". Still learning this one, I need to work on it more:

    Working on "Rocky Road to Dublin", close to acceptable. Yea, it's not purely a fiddle tune, but it's a lot of fun to play it as a slip jig along with The High Kings' YouTube vid of them singing it.

    Next: "The King of the Fairies". Yes, I'm starting my Irish tune list with the easier ones.

    A Smooth One, Benny Goodman. Tommy Emmanuel really rips it.

    I'm working on Katie Bar the Door. It's totally easy. I read that it's composed by Rayna Gellert. She sure has some beautiful tunes! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbbvUL7E3AU

    I have been really working on this tune because I like it so much. It's a typical twisted OT tune. First heard it from my OT fiddler friends Bill & Dougie and then later found out they learned it from Bruce Molsky's Mountain Drifters. Flowers of Edinbourgh. Here's my try at it. Mixed in my guitar using my little Tascam mixer. Let me know what you think.

    I just started the Inimitable Reel. It's on the top of page 70 of Ryans.
    It is attributed to "E. Christie", who would be Edwin Pearce Christy, from the mid-1800s.

    That is the second time that tune has come up in conversations this year. I guess I need to learn it.

    Yes, Jeff, it is inimitable, and so you need to play it.

    starting to play "Chattanooga". I've found versions in F and in G. Taking the wimp route (also because I happen to noodle daily with a banjo player) I've chosen the G version.

    And thanks for the tip on "Inimitable." I'll check it out. With a title like that, who can resist?
