    Default What tune is this?



    Part of this tune has been stuck in my head for a while, and I just saw this video, and was like hey! What tune is that?! So, any help?

    I don't recognize the first one but the second one with LRB is called Rebecca, a Herschel Sizemore good 'un.

    Chilly Winds Of Shannon, a Bill Monroe tune that Bill recorded on Jimmy Campbellís recording Pieces Of Time. That was one of Billís last recording sessions.

    It's a Monroe tune for sure. I'll have to look through my recordings to find it. I'll be right back
    Sorry, I should have read Andy B's post!

    Old Ebenezer Scrooge is one of the best tunes Monroe wrote.
