    Default Name that tune - sorry, NMC

    This video of Bruce Moskey and Tony Trischka kicks of with a very familiar tune whose name escapes me. Please help!



    The whole thing is well worth watching, especially if you like OT fiddle and banjo tunes.

    I believe it is "East Tennessee Blues" though Bruce Molsky (actual spelling) puts in his own variations. Thanks for posting this.

    It took me awhile, too. I went through all my Fiddling Arthur Smith tunes and all seemed similar but could not find anything close. I finally memorized the first few phrases and knew it was in the key of C so that helped.

    BTW I even tried a site called Tunepal but it came up with lots of Irish tunes and even the Tibetan National Anthem! Pretty funny!

    Actually, although the A part is rather similar to East Tennessee Blues, I believe it is something else, but I don't know what.

    The fourth and twelfth bar of the A section of East Tennessee Blues are not generally returned to a C chord, at least in the versions that I am familiar with; and the B section, which modulates to A major, is completely different.

    I think it might be "Goin' Crazy"

    We could go on like this for a while so I just asked Bruce. Here is what he said, “Hey Jim! It’s Honeysuckle from Camp Creek Boys.”

    Is he sure?

    I think any of the tune titles would work because they probably all grew off the same stalk. But on the Molsky/Trischka video, I'll take Molsky's word for it. Horse's mouth, and all that.

    Any other titles for this tune?

    This is what I would call a “congloma-tune” made up of various parts of other tunes. I think there is one part added onto it from “I ain’t got nobody.”
