Jim Along Jocie (Hammons) gourd banjo, fiddle
Lisa on gourd banjo, Brian on fiddle.I learned this banjo tune from listening to a recording of Burl Hammons of West Virginia (1908-1993). This version bears almost no resemblance to the more familiar versions of "Jim Along Josie". I like it because it is spare but has a lot going on under the surface.I'm playing in F, 'sawmill tuning', on my pig-head gourd banjo. Brian plays fiddle tuned down.The tune starts out a bit rough, but warms up nicely by the hearth. Sorry about the dark fireside lighting. A little home made music, right before Christmas 2011.Now with Ultra-wide Low Drive!
