    I have been slaving over Oklahoma Redbird in Bb recently. Exceptionally fun on fiddle as well as mandolin.

    My wife and I specialize in old fiddle tunes with her on fiddle and me on guitar/mandolin/clawhammer banjo. I read music and mine the Portland books for all they're worth. I found some interesting tune books at the Celtic Interpretive Centre in Judique, Cape Breton Island, NS. An interesting tune we learned was Ways of the World. A favorite new OT tune was Elzics Farewell.

    I'm focused on Lindsey Road (Harvey Reid). I've played this in a duet for several years using my mandolin. Now, it's coming out of my octave mandolin. (Actually, I'm having fun re-tooling music on my OM! Fingering's not quite the same!

    All fun though!

    Lonesome Fiddle Blues. Should have started it twenty years ago because thatís how long it will take me to get up to speed, by which time I wonít be able to play half that fast if at all.

    Fortunately thereís a couple of guys doing a nice slow mando w guitar version on Utube.

    Iím a firm believer that music is not a competition, but I canít even watch Vassar playing it while Iím trying to get there. What he does with it is literally impossible.

    There is a cool vid of Sam Bush and ten-year-old Sierra Hull swapping it off, which is pretty inspiring. Just cause they have so much fun I think.

    My new fiddle tune is Cora Dye. I found the notation from Gary Harrison -- Fiddle -- Indian Creek Delta Boys. Another good one is Baby Ben (James Bryan, fiddle) Both of these tunes are fairly complex to hear, so I need the notation to remember them.

    Here's Cattle in the Cane on the Octave, Art Dudley learnt me up on this one before he passed away last year.

    Hereís my newest tune, a favourite. I really like the rhythm to this one and the C major chord at the beginning of the B part.

    I see you capoed up to the fifth fret. What key do you finger this in? It's a beautiful tune and I would love to learn it. The link says, "with tab," but I don't see a tab.

    Stringalong, if you open Simon’s video in YouTube, then click the text right below the video, all the information you want is there. I also like this one, and especially that C chord (“the major lift”) in the B part.

    Thanks! I'll check out this tab. It's also on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3UOW...nnel=JohnKelly without a capo. It's in Am here.

    Ha, ha, actually there’s a bit of a discussion at John’s birthday thread here. https://www.mandolincafe.com/forum/g...954&do=discuss
    He plays it the right way in Am, but not with Ye Olde English rhythm.
    -a rhythm once loved never forgotten
    -although John Spiers and Jon Boden play it in jig rhythm.
    -although they play it in Dm

    Note: please don’t visit the above thread without wishing John a happy birthday. Thank you.

    The Minor Rigged Ship is similar in some ways, it’s a ship, but it’s quite different.

    I often tend to work on tunes in groups. Presently playing Texas (a.k.a. Newcastle), Roscoe, and Georgia (a.k.a. Ain't No Hell in Georgia). Also dusting off a slow oooky version of Hog Eyed Man (a.k.a. Sally in the Garden).
    Having something to say is highly over rated.

    Now I'm retooling all my fiddle tunes to the octave mandolin. Pinky struggles! Position struggles! Tempo struggles!

    Having a blast!
