    too many to name. I like Harvest Home Hornpipe. I'm working Flowers of Edinburg. Can't go wrong with the standards. I will bet I play Soldiers Joy about ever other time I pickup my mandolin

    Lots of good standards on the Tabl Edit Café page under Learn/Listen. Search for Old Time.

    Charlie Walden is the king of old time fiddle tunes. Check out his site at and hit him with a little PayPal for all the effort he's made for us!

    Don't usually play that much old time, but was very taken with Tombigbee Waltz when I heard Mike Compton playing it as part of The Helen Highwater Stringband on YouTube, so learning it just now. Lesson, tab and backing track on Mandolessons.

    +1 for Jim's post.
    What is your definition of GOOD ?
    Very few of us know, how much we have to know, in order to know, how little we know.
