    This is a new old time tune, John Grimm's Butterfly Waltz. It's on his new album.

    Working on Devaney's Goat. Dave Surette uses some triplets in unexpected places which at 180 bpm is a challenge for me. So the last week has devolved to triplet practice, which I need.

    Reel de Montreal from Randy Miller's New England Fiddler Repertoire book. A great resource.

    Sometimes I see a title and it piques my interest. So in the New England / Quebec repertoire I have been learning Snoring Mrs. Gobiel, Little Burnt Potato, Reel de Montreal, and Big John McNeil among others. Gotta wonder who and where they came up with those titles but they are wonderful tunes.

    Working on O’Leary’s Motorcycle at the moment. https://thesession.org/tunes/4603 thanks Gortnamona for this one.
    Wonderfully rhythmic, rolling, clattering tune with some great parts where you can throw in hesitant triplets and discordant double stops.

    Ones that come to mind immediately: Coleman’s March, Ashokan Farewell—actually a bunch of waltzes, Tombigbee is one. I’ll think some more.

    Kentucky Mandolin, First Day in Town, Garfield’s Blackberry Blossom, Dusty Miller, Lonesome Fiddle Blues
    Those are all similar to J Ridge...

    Of course, it all depends on how you play them, but a couple that come to mind: Farewell Trion, Elk River Blues, Neil Gao's Lament, and Coal Harbor Bend. Maybe some of the Bill Monroe Waltzes, like Lonesome Moonlight Waltz. His Mississippi Waltz might be more bluesy than you are looking for.

    Some people play these tunes fast, but they are great nice and slow, too.

    Maple Leaf Jig. Learning on the fiddle and mandolin. Tricky timing with the bow / pick. In 6/8 time (jig) but you've got to pay close attention to the note values. Fun tune to play though!

    Dry and Dusty.

    When I need mandospiration, I sometimes look up this youngster, Matt Witler. He plays demos for Music Emporium and is always so...musical. He reminds me of why I try to play the thing. This is a slower tempo than I've usually heard the tune, but it really sounds...musical.
