Modal Tunes

Here are some of my attempts to play some of  Henry Reed’s Modal tunes

Besty Liken

Shady Grove

Ducks on the Pond


Some of those D tunes

Here are some tunes done in D:

Big Liza From Kyle Creed

Angeline the Baker As played by Norman Edmonds 

Trader Boatman   From Pug Allen 

Sugar Hill Round Peak Style  

Cumberland Gap From the Bing Brothers  

Some A Tunes

As a break from my babbling here are some A tunes on the Banjo:

Big Hoedown From Edden Hammons

Jenny Get Around As Played by John Salyer 

Little Rabbit-Rabbit where’s your Mammy From the Crockett Family, played as two tunes, as a medley, like it was recorded, not as a 5 part tune.
