    For the A and B parts I was learning from this video of Sierra Hull and Stuart Duncan ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfBPcw0y2YU ), since that's what inspired me to begin learning it. However I confess that after the B part Sierra's playing gets a bit too radical for me to follow (even at a slower speed) without knowing the basic tune first. So I've been learning the rest from a recording by Jacob Joliff and Ian Fleming from the album "Tone Poets." It's clear, well-played, and not too embellished.

    What about this guy? He is pretty good, I think.



    Also, I found this backup track for that tune and you can even slow it down a bit in YouTube.

    It's true I should probably learn straight from the source!

    And thanks for the backup track! I always love playing to those when I'm working on a tune.

    No, nothing wrong with learning from varied sources.

    Well, the Monroe version is probably most appropriate for learning the tune outright anyways since it is even less embellished than the second recording I was using. I'll learn the rest of the tune from Monroe and then look around at variations.

    Those are both on my to-do list. I learned Chinquapin Hunting last year on guitar and really like it but haven't found anyone to play it with. Just learned Flowers of Edinburgh on mandolin last weekend.

    mandolin fakebook version. I do have a recording of Wayne Henderson playing it. I just like to run that tune for my fingers. Plus it has a few interesting quirks that are fun to the ear!

    Cuffy
    Black cat in the briar patch
    Whistlebee

    Whistlebee took 10 minutes to learn fluently because the melody is so strong. First recorded in 1924 in Alabama by a mr dix.

    Cuffy is great fun, with long lines and a simple fingering.

    Black cat is one of those tunes with a tag on the end that take some extra time to translate from fiddle technique to mandolin technique. After a few days of playing along with the amazing slow downer I can play it at about 2/3 speed on my own, but when a banjo joins in my fingers suddenly stop hitting the right notes. I’ll get it right with one more day of practice. Very tricky A part in the key of C jumping between octaves. The B part in the key of G is also tricky and very funky. Enjoy it.

    I got Big Scotia under my fingers pretty good today, not quite up to tempo. Half-way have The Gravel Walk, need more work to get the C and D parts. Polishing Chinquapin Hunting and Squirrel Hunters. And going back to refresh tunes I haven’t played in years that everyone used to play and we don’t hear much anymore like Blackberry Blossom, Red Headed Boy, Salt Creek...

    One I just heard David Harvey play on an older Mandolin Monday sounds really good. Cruising Timber. I thought I would find some notation to get a head start on it, and then listen to his embellishments to try to make it sound half as good as he plays it. Nope, no luck on the notation. Will have to do it the hard (best) way.
